How Far New Assurances 

Go Is Yet to Be 


tTiishington. Ffb. 22. — Confidential 
mdvk-es from Btilin today indicate that 
Oermany soon will inform the United 
States that her previous assurances 
that unres'sting linera will not be at- 
tacked without warning holds good for 
future submarines, provided, hcwfver, 
that such liners do not carry arma- 

The n«riiian government will con- 
tend, the advices «tate< that what now 

Is characterized as defensive arma- 
ment rvftlly is offensive armament 
when submarines are concerned and 
will propose discussion with the 
United >tates of what defensive arma- 
ment ptop'rly may be. 
BiitiMh an*! Freneh Liners Xat Armed. 

As none of the British and French 
liners now clearing from American 
ports carry any guns whatever, such 
assurances frt>m (Jermany will be in 
the nature of reassurances for the 
•afety for the neutrals they carry, 
even under the terms of the new sub- 
marine campaign. 

How far such assurances will go to- 
ward meeting the state department's 
objection that the Lusitania agree- 
ment as at present drawn applies only 
to the past and not to the future prob-

Comptroller Sees Way 

State Might Lose on 

Rockefeller Fortune. 

Funds Turned Into Founda- 
tion Could Be Dis- 
tributed to Heirs. 

New York. Feb. 22 Asserting that 

•ome of the residuary legatees under 
the will of the late Mrs. John D. 
Rockefeller. Sr., were unjustly ex- 
cluded f^om sharing in her 1900,000 
eatate. State Comptroller Eugene M. 

Travis yesterday filed an appeal here 
from the surrogate's decree fixing the 
tax rate on the estate. The comptroller 
alleges that the executors and trus- 
tees. John D. Rockefeller, John D. 
Rockefeller, Jr., and Mrs. Alta Rocke- 
feller Prentice, in di-itributing or 
claiming to distribute property of the 
Rockefeller foundation did not comply 
with the terms of Mrs. Rockefeller's 
will and that $438,593 of the estate 
whieh passed to the Rockefeller foun- 
dation is therefore taxable. The sur- 
rogate declared this to be exempt. 

The state comptroller said he based 
the appeal on the ground that the 
foundation is not a charitable corpora- 
tion, and that it is performing the 
functions of a trust company, and that 
when It receives bequests, it is not 
exempt from the transfer tax. 

The action strikes at the very es- 
sence of the foundation, according to 
Schuyler C. Carlton, the attorney, who 
has charge of the proceeding. He said 
If the state failed to exact a tax from 
the foundation in this instance, it 
might be possible for the entire Rocke- 
feller fortune to be turned into the 
foundation which is not restricted from 
passing the bequests to other than 
charitable organizations, and thus the 
great estate of the Rockefellers could 
possibly pass on to other members 
of the family through the foundation 
and escape paying any transfer tax to 
the state. 

Berlin. F. b. 22. via wirelss to Say- 
vllle, N. Y. -Cardinal Mercler's recent 
utterances i nd actions while in Rome 
are discuss 'd today by the German 
newspapers, says the Overseas News 
agency, which adds: 

"The Vossische Zeltung points out 
that while the primate of Belgium was 
in Rome he was received by the Ital- ] 
ian membeis of parliament. Slgnors I 
Lorant and Destree, who both are well | 
known Fre ; Masons. Signor Lorant i 
was the ex-jcutor of the last will of 
Prof. Francisco Ferrer, the Anarchist, 
who was executed in Spain in 1909, 
which pro\ es that Cardinal Mercier 
Is a very ictlve politician. 

"The Catholic newspaper Koelnische 
Volk.szeitun < today publishes a lead- 
ing article entitled, 'Is It By Acci- 
dent ".'■ The newspaper recalls Cardinal 
Mercler's pistoral letter dated Sept. 
21. 1915, ii which he compared the 
Germans with Lucifer and urged Bel- 
gians to prj y in the churches for tler- 
many's defeat when the Anglo-French 
offensive b "gan. 

KorKOt to Submit Letter to Censor. 

"The new <paper asks whether it also 
was a mere accident that the cardinal 
forgot to si bmit his pastoral letter to 
the Germai censor. 

The Volkt Zeltung then asks wheth- 
er Cardinal Mercier while in Rome 
met the Frt nch premier, M. Brland, by 
accident. It declares that Premier 
Briand is < onsldered by Catholics as 
an enemy of the church. The news- 
paper furtlter asks whether it was 
only by accident that a wireless mes- 
sage sent oat by the Eiffel tower de- 
clared that Cardinal Mercier had fur- 
nished to Piemier Briand proof of 'Ger- 
man atroclt ies.' 

"The VolkB Zeltung says that former- 
ly there had been a working arrange- 
ment between the German authorities 
and the pilmate of Belgium, but it 
says it is <laubtful whether this still 
Is possible after Cardinal Mercler's 
agitation in Rome."

German Forces Deliver 

Strong Attack in Given-

Driven Out By Counter- 

Attack in All But Few 


"The aggregate happiness of society which is best promoted by the practice of a 
virtuous policy, is, or ought to be, the end of all government." — George Washington. 

Paris, Feb. 22, via London, 3:66 p. m. 
— German forces yesterday evening de- 
livered a strong attack against the 
French po.sltlons at the forest of Glv- 
, enchy, east of Souchez, according to 
official announcement made by the 
French war office this afternoon and 
were 8ucces.«ful in penetrating the first 
lines of the French trenches for a dis- 
tance of 800 ineters. They then occu- 
pied some of the French communicat- 
ing trenches but a French counter-at- 
tack resulted in driving the Germans 
from all but a few of the-^e positions. 

The German forces engaged In this 
attack amounted to seven battalions 
and, according to the French state- 
ment, they suffered heavy losses. 
Ejected by Coanter-.4i(taeks. 

At Brabant-Sur-Meuse the Germans 
gained a footing in some of the French 
advanced trenches and at certain 
places they penetrated to the commu- 
nicating trenches. From these latter 
positions, however, tBey were ejected 
by French counter-attacks. The 
French took flfty prisoners at this

Both on the center in the Erzerum dis- 
trict and on the widely extended 
northern and southern flanks the Rus- 
sians are everywhere continuing with 
energy pursuit of the routed Turkish 

The Russian advance is having the 
effect not only of severing all connec- 
tions between the now isolated Turk- 
ish army groups but of constantly- 
strengthening communications of their 
own forces from the Black sea district 
to the recently occupied town of Mush^ 
on the southern Russian wing. 

Thus the operations of the Russian* 
are assuming the character of a solid 
and unbroken advance along the entire 
front. On the Black sea coast the 
Russians now have driven the Turks 
twenty miles west of Vitzseu and the 
occupation of Trebizond is believed to 
be Imminent.

The Turks, evidently Impressed with 
the headway the Russian forces are 
making, appear to be Inspired with the 
-sole aim of extricating themselvea 
from their difficult position before 
they Ere surrounded, and are making 
no effort to hold endangered points 
now in their possession. 

"With a minimum of resistance oon- 
sslting chiefly of perfunctorv rear- 
guard actions, the Turkish retreat la- 
one of the most precipitate of the war.

session, the Russian forces on the 
southern wing are now proceeding to- 
wards Bitlis. Once their objective i»

I Oswald F. Gau'-hier. aged 22. a crane 
I operator, was nstantly klUed this 
i tnorningr some time between 9:30 and 
11:45 o'clock by Iteing crushed between 
a crane and tie waU of the open 
hearth stock building at the Duluth 
steel plant. Th » fatality is the first 
to occur In moie than two years at 
the plant. 

No one knows how the accident hap- 
pened. Th© mm's body was found 
shortly before the noon whistle blew, 
badly crushed. U was lying on a rail- 
ing. This railing was one of the 
places where en ployes have been for- 
bidden to walk. 

Gauthier was ast seen shortly after 
9:30 o'clock. Why he went out on the 
railing la unaccountable according to 
officers. The ci ane man in operating 
the crane back f ud forth lifting heavy 
machinery and n»aterlal from one place 
to another had i ot witnessed the acci- 
dent. If a scretm was uttered by the 
victim when he was crushed it Is evi- 
dent that the cr/ was drowned out by 
the noise of the crane. 

The young m<.n had been employed 
at the plant for more than two years. 
He resided wit > his family at 6614 
Grand avenue. The body was taken to 
Flllatrault s undertaking rooms. 

Accidents havt been rare at the local 
plant. Employ. ts are Instructed In 
"safety first" n ethods and the shops 
are liberally plastered with "safety 
first" signs. Tills, claim officials, has 
been one of the reasons why such ac- 
cidents have b»en kept down to a 

charge of the funeral and will attend 
In a body.

Every Bit of Dandruff Dis- 
appears and Hair Stops 
Coming Out. 


Colored Shirts Are Likely to 

Come Home Faded, Is 


Try This! Your Hair Appears 

Glossy, Abundant, Wavy 

and Beautiful. 

Thin, brittle, colorless and scra^gry 
hair is mute evidence of a neglected 
scalp: of dandruff — that awful scurf. 

There is nothing f^o destructive to 
the hair as dandruff. It robs the hair 
of its lustre, its .strength- and its very 
lifi*^; eventually producing a feverish- 
ness and itching of the scalp, which 
if not remedied causes the hair roots 
TO shrink, loosen and die — ^then the 
hair falls out fast- A little Danderine \ vocal 
tonight — now — any time — will surely 
save your hair. 

Get a 25-cent bottle of Knowlton's 
Danderine from any drug store or toi- 
let counter, and after the first appll- 
ration your hair will take on that life, 
lustre and luxuriance which Is so beau- 
tiful. It will become wavy and fluffy 
and have the appearance of abund- 
ance, an incomparable gloss and soft- 
ness; but what will please you most 
will be after just a few week's use. 
when you will actually see a lot of 
fine, downy hair — new hair — growing 
ail over the scalp

If your colored shirt comes back 
from the laundry streaked and faded 
almost beyond recognition, don't quar- 
rel with the laundryman. He's not to 
blame. And he will suggest that you 
should have used more discretion In 
buying the shirt. 

The seat of the trouble lies in the 
dye which is now being used In color- 
ing shirtings, laundrymen say. Ameri- 
can dyes are not successful and there 
is a shortage of permanent dyestuffs 
almost amounting to a famine. 

Duluth laundries which are affil- 
iated with the Laundrymen's National 
Association of America are this week 
sending out notices to their customers 
of the difficulty In washing goods col- 
ored by American dyes and urging 
patrons to use as much white goods as 
possible until such time as the perma- 
nent dyes will again be available. 

Careful investigation which has 
been made by the national association 
of laundrymen has disclosed: 

That industries depending upon fast 
colors are in many cases closing 

That the better quality of shirtings 
now being worn, are perhaps In fast 
colors, but that this condition cannot 
possibly continue for any great length 
of time. 

That the wash goods in which the 
colors are most questionable at the 
present time are; red tablecloths and 
napkins and towels with red borders, 
blacks in cotton ginghams, which are 
apt to wash lighter and in some cases 
"crock" when the damp goods are 
folded; black stockings, which will 
probably "bleed" and turn lighter. 

That light goods with blue, red or 
black trimmings are apt to cause 

It is understood that some makers 
of wash goods are already notifying 
their patrons that they cannot guar- 
antee the permanency of colors. 

There Is no known method whereby, 
"fugitive" colors may be washed so 
that they will not run. And in view of 
the fact that there is no way of know- 
ing whether colors will run or not. ex- 
cept by washing,, the laundries are 
notifying their patrons that they can- 
not be held responsible when these 
'goods fade, as some of them surely 

The shortage of permanent dyestuffs 
was brought on by the European war.

Brainerd, Minn., Feb. 22.— (Special 
to The Herald.)— The "Oriental Lim- 
ited" special on the Northern Pacific 
carried 200 "Princes" to Little Falls 
last night where a class of over 1,000 
was initiated. Tlie grand parade vf&st 
led by "Fatty" Wood, who weighs 470 

That talents must be used and de- 
veloped to be retained was the key- 
note of the sermon preached by Dr. 
John W. HofCnvan. pastor of the First 
M. E. church, who preached again this 
noon at the Lyceum theater. He said 

in part: 

"Jesus appears to be unjust as well 
as severe. To take from a man that 
which he has, simply because he does 
not use it. looks like a violation of the 
right of ownership. No man shall be 
deprived of his property 'without due 
process of law' is one of the great 
guarantees of our nation. Any viola- 
tion of this fundamental law of the 
land is punished by appropriate penal- 
ties. Christ was not an anarchist. He 
was abrogating no law. He was 
creating no new obligation. He was 
imposing no new observance on so- 
ciety. He was sipiply announcing a 
fact of life. Nature, races, nations and 
individuals llliistrate In various ways 
the inevitable loss of unusual func- 
tions and abilities. 

"Our Lord was not speaking of 
houses and lands but of human capaci- 
ties, social opportunities and of spir- 
itual endowments. The possession of 
a talent is a hint from God Almighty 
that it was designed for use. That 
something in the artist which inspires 
him to paknt, or in the poet which 
urges him to compose, or in the musi- 
cian which Impels him to song. Is of 
God. It Is marvelous how the capacity 
of the artist In color or tone grows 
and enriches as he uses It. Insignifi- 
cant at first seemed the abilities of 
Emerson or Livingstone or Gladstone, 
but they Increased In power and de- 
veloped in refinement through use. 
These men all remind us that the en- 
dowments whlcli appeared meager may 
become abimdatft. We must use or lose. 
ReMpAUd to Tratli. 
"This view of \if'' held by Jesus, 
confirmed by science, and re-enforced 
by history.! meaas that all men are 
capable of i responding to truth and 
responslbilily. Hvery child is born 
with a capacity for thought, for emo- 
tion, for choice, for action. The idea 
that we are driven by a power we can 
neither know or love is repugnant to 
every vestige of personal feeling. The 
universe is not a machine, and we are 
not its parts. In all men there Is 
Insight and love. In the home and in 
business In pleasures and In purposes 
we observe how these qualities of soul 
operate. Journey where one may. It Is 
always the same. In India, In Africa, 
in Turkey, in Europe, under vastly 
different forms and customs, we find 
the play of insight and love Discord- 
ant sounds, awful crashes, fearful bru- 
tality ai»d terrible inhumanity are seen 
and felt throughout the earth They 
sadden human hearts, not because we 
are coerced by a blind ruthless fate, 
but solely because we refuse to re- 
spond and be guided by love. 
Th^ Badge of Manhood. 
"Nor Is this jjll. Jesus most certain- 
ly implies we liave capacity for dis 
criminating beiween truth 
hood, between goodtiess 
This faculty is not acquired, it is born 
with us. It is the nature of .our soul. | 
It belongs to man. It Is the badge of 
his manhood, the mark of his human- 
ity. It is wanting in no race, tribe or 
group of people found on God's broad 
earth. There is a conscienca In all. It 
may be trairted or developed. It may 
be abused and degenerate. One man 
violates the sanctity of the Sabbath 
without ft qualm while another knows 
It Is a (Jay for moral culture and 
physical relaxation. The ancient pa- 
triarchs Indulged in a retaliation 
which is offensive to the Christian 
conscience. Vastly Inferior though their 
ethics are as are -those of the Arab of 
today, as compared to the cultivated 
Christian, we must never forget that 
in them as in as. conscience must ever 
act on the truth presented. Nothing 
Is of suchi irtiportance therefore as 
nourishing conscience with the great- 
est truths ot the day. The young lady 
practices on easy going morality be- 
cause her training of conscience has 
not kept pace with the refinements of 
polite society. :The young man per- 
mits an unfortunate Indulgence and 
neglect of vital habits through a la- 
mentable failure to develop his native 
power of moral discrimination. We 
must use or lose, we must develop or 
degenerate. Every walk of life thrusts 
Its pathet 
our path 

and false 
and badness. 

Nevv's concerning the so-called Con- 
ners lake line combination, which is 
generally expected to take over the 
package freight lines, cut loose from 
their railroad owners last fall when 
the divorcement order of the Inter- 
state commerce commission went into 
effect, is evidently been strictly 
guarded at the offices of those con- 
cerned at the lower lake ports. How- 
ever, enough has leaked out to show 
that the Anchor line interests pre- 
dominate to the extent of practically 
furnishing the business nucleus of the 
new concern. 

Within the last few days, cancella- 
tion notices of all tariffs and routes I 
have been received in Duluth from tlie 
head offices of the Western Transit | 
company and the Mutual Transit com- i 
pany. two of the lines that will be 
ab.sorbed, and one cancellation has 
been received from the Anchor line. 
These notices all recite that the can- 
cellations are made compulsory by the 
Interestate commerce commission's 
order of May 7, 1915, which is the di- 
vorcement order, and which was ex- 
tended, so far as its execution was 
concerned, to Dec. IB, last. 

Cvait« A* Prevldent. 
Enough news has drifted up this 
way to show that James C. Evans, 
president of the Anchor line, will be 
nominal h<'ad of the new combination, 
although the concern will be backed 
by W. J. Conners of Buffalo and asso- 
ciates whom he has interested during 
the last year. It Is also rumored, and 
it Is believed that the rumor is well 
founded, that the Anchor line organ- 
ization along the lakes will be used 
as the business organization of the 
new company. That will mean that 
M. S. Mead, agent for the Anchor line 
here for years, will be Duluth agent 
for the new lake line combination. Ap- 
pointment to this office, Mr. Mead de- 
nies, declaring that he has not been 
notified as to what the future plans I 
are. At present he is engaged in 
closing up the bu.slness of the Anchor 
line at this point. However, among 
shippers, who have been inquiring 
pretty closely in the possible aspects 
of the situation, it is generally felt 
that Mr. Mead will be the agent here 
and will iiave tlie forming of the of- 
fice force and the organization of the 
dock forces for the new line at this 

News has been so assiduously 
guarded concerning the affair that 
about all of a definite nature that has 
leaked out is that the plans of Mr. 
Conners have been halted for the time 
to await some action in the injunction 
proceedings brought by the Lehigh 
Valley company to stop Interference 
with the operation of its line of pack- 
age freighters. However, it is claimed. 
Mr. Conners' project has reached such 
a stage that the Lehigh Valley action 
will not matter much and that he hsie 
obtained posse.ssion or at least an Op- 
tion on virtually all of the boats he 

But further than that, no plan of 
operation Is revealed as yet. although 
It is believed that a very definite an- 
nouncement will be made in a very 
few days; for it is felt that while Mr. 
Conners may have been given paus^ 
by the Lehigh Valley situation, hl.<» 
plans' have been too nearly completed 
and matured to permit of much* delay 
no matter whlciv way the Lehigh Val- 
ley case is decided or If it is not de- 
cided for some time.

"Nothing} l^ pnore inane than that 
goodness and bidnt-ss are merely acci- 
dents of lile or are matters of tem- 
~ od man is a product 
e cultured resources 
e, of God. Goodness 
a through no magic, 
comes to the arm of 
or as taste to the 
artist. Mrs. Besant is eternally right: 
'God fades out of life of him, who does 
not pray.' It is easy for such a man 
to become a rationalist, an infidel, or 
an atheist. Disnse of capacity imposes 
its own awful penalty. One day the 
shocking news passed from mouth to 
mouth, 'Frank is dead.' It is incredi- 
ble. Our finest athlete gone. Sick only 
three days and dead. Out of college 
only a few years and dead. We were 
appalled. Our hearts refused to believe 
it but Frank was dead. Great, 
riigged, big-hearted smiling Frank 
was dead. His muscles had col- 
lapsed through disuse. No exercise 
had brought on rapid degeneration. On 
the streets of a great city a gentleman 
was pointed out with the remark, 
•That man was once a minister. Today 
he is a cynical infidel.' We watched 
him as he passed. His face was hard, 
his smile cold, his bearing austere. He 
had lost God. Opposite us sat an en- 
terprising business man. Once he had 
intended entering the ministry of 
Jesus Christ. Money had a greater 
fascination for him as he frankly ex- 
plained the change in his career. 
Gradually his affection for Jesus les- 
sened. He grew cruel in life. His 
mouth Indulged in profanity, his soul west 
became morally bankrupt. Today his 
religious expedience is a memory. 
Jesus Is right. lAte reminds us that 
we must use or lose our capacities, our 
conscience, our chance to become like 
God in richness and in goodness."

Police Spread Ultimatum 

Broadcast Among Saloon 

Hangers On. 



"Go to work, get out of town--or 
go to jail." 

This police ultimatum, spread broad- 
cast among the cheaper saloons along 
West Michigan and West Superior 
streets and Lake and St. Croix ave- 
nues, has had a bombshell effect on 
"vags" and old offenders who hava 
weathered many a "clean-up." 

When Chief R. D. McKercher recent- 
ly announced that he Intended cleaning 
up the town and that he would start 
at the seat of trouble, namely t*ie 
cheaper saloons, the habituea of the 
places in question were not worried. 

"There is no excuse for a maji being 
out of work at this time, if he is phys- 
ically fit," said the chief; "otherwise it 
might mako a difference. Any ques- 
tionable characters we pick up wUl 


have to show a clean slate or get out 
of town." 

Today the chief filed with Safety 
Commissioner Silberstein a plan for 
wiping out the saloons in one block 
along West Michigan street, and he is 
considering seriously similar action 
with regard to other districts that 
give the force a lot of trouble. 

"In the busy seasons — fall and 
spring — we have two or three holdups 
or robberies a day from a two-block - 
area on West Michigan street and 
from a one or two-block stretch along 
Lake and St. Croix avenues. It's go- 
ing to stop if the police department 
has anything to say about it." 

Plain clothes men -vrere busy last 
night and today rounding up "vags" 
who have been hanging around and 
who police believe responsible for mi- 
nor thefts, although they have been 
unable to. prove cases. 

Henry La Rochelle, 35, brought in 
by Detective Barber and Patrolman O. 
Olson, was given an hour and a half 
to get out of town, while Joe Maroh- 
nlch, 26. arrested by Detectives Toewe 
and Bradley, was given four hours. 
William Wilson, 27, said to be an ex- 
convict, was brought to headquarti rs. 
by Lieut. Lahti and Detective Robert 
this morning. No action has been 
taken in his case, or in that of two 
or three other alleged "vags" who> ara 
In "limbo.* 

"They've all got to go," said tha 
chief, "that's straight."

NEW YORK, N. Y.— Mo6t people 
foolishly seem to think they are going 
to get renewed health and strength, 
from some stimulating medicine, secret 
nostrum or narcotic drug, said Dr. 
Sauer, a specialist of this city, when, 
^•5 a matter of fact, real and true 
strength can only come from the food 
you eat. But people often fail to get 
the strength out of their food because 
they haven't enough Iron In their blood 
to enable it to change food into living 
matter. From their weakened, nervous 
condition they know something is 
wrong, but they can't tell what, so 
they generally commence doctoring for 
Btomach, liver or kidney trouble or 
symptoms of some other ailment caused 
by the lack of iron In the blood. This 
thing may go on for years, while the 
patient suffers untold agony. If you 
are not strong or well you owe it to 
yourself to make the following test. 
See how long you can work or how far 
you can walk without becoming tired. 
Next take two flve-grain tablets of or- 
dinary nuxated Iron three times per 
day after meals for two weeks. Then 
tes"t your strength again and see for 

yourself how much you have gained. I 
have seen dozens of nervovis. rundown 
people who wtre ailing all the while, 
double their strength and endurance 
and entirely get rid of all symptoms of

prescribed local remedies, and by con- 
stantly failing to cure with local treat-

All Strong Local Quartets 
Win Games in First Draw 
of Day— T^iree St. Paul 
Rinks Are Put Out of Run- 
ning—Big Crowd Watches 

. Three of tho five craek rinks of St. 
Paul wore put out of the running in 
the state championship bonspiel in the 
curling play of today's early draw. Of 
the rinks sent up by St. Paul, Lem De- 
fiel, who is skipping the rink Dunbar 
I is playing third on, and Holmes were 
the only ones to win, Manheimer, 
Griggs and Strickland being put out 
of the running. 

The great contest of the morning 
draw was that between Milton Griggs, 
the veteran St. Paul skip, and -Charles 
I Brewer. The rinks came into the 
twelfth head tied. Brewer lay shot 
with Griggs having the last rock. The 
St. Paul skip attempted a rather dif- 
ficult shot in an endeavor to raise a 
rock out and lay, but was narrow. 

Defiel's strong rink, with the great 
and only Bob Dunbar In the lineup 
defeated Bert Dunlop, and H. S. Mac- 
gregor put Carl Manheimer's Apostle 
rink out of the running. Holmes of 
St. Paul defeated Naughton of Duiuth, 
and the strong Hoople rink defeated 
Stockey <,f St. Paul. 

Alex Donald's West Duiuth rink, the 
holder of the state title, came through 
in good shape early today and easily 
defeated the Butchard rink. Bradley 
and Dinham came through the morn- 
ing draw unscathed, so that Duiuth 

has Its strongest finks in the play up 
to a late period this afternoon. 

In tho play of this afternoon Bill 
Dinham's rink is opposing Ron Smith, 
and Defiei is playing Stillman. Brad- 
ley is end'avoring to put the strong 
Hoople rink out of the running, and 
H. S. Micgregor is opposing R. F. 
Wade. Holmes of St. Paul is playing 
S. H. Jones, and Alex Donald, state 
champion, has been picked on by the 
Biewtr - Whytes. Patten and Fred 
HoL-ne are also on the afternoon draw. 

There was a large crowd on hand 
early today to witness the play. The 
eallery watching the Brewer-Griggs 
game was one of the largest that has 
ftver followed a curling game in the 
local club.

park. It is also urged because of Im- 
proved car service which It might 
bring about at some future time. 

The club appointed A. L. Wright, E. 
T. Wagoner and C. G. Flroved a com- 
mittee to confer with the city commis- 
sioners regarding the placing of a 
polling place on the hill near the 
Munger school. It Is claimed that 
many voters in the Munger locality 
have found it inconvenient to walk to 
Twelfth avenue east and Fourth street 
to vote. 

The consensus of opinion among the 
members of the club last evening was 
that the street railway company 
should be asked to change the name 
of its East Ninth street car sign to 
"East Ninth Street and Chester Park." 
A committee consisting of A. O. Swain, 
M. Rink and R. A. Johnson will wait 
on the street railway officials with 
this request. 

Petitions asking that Eleventh ave- 
nue east be paved from Second to 
Eleventh street were filed with the 
secretary of the club. An effort will 
be made to secure more signers before 
the petitions are presented to the city

After taking Mayr's Wonderful Rem- 
edy, discovered for her by a kind 
friend, she found herself on the way 
back to health. Mrs. Williams wrote: i 

"I have taken Mayr's Wonderful I 
Remedy for the fourth time and I am 
feeling like a new woman. I am en- 
tirely out of pain. I had been sick 
for eighteen months and four of our 
best doctors could do nothing for me. 
They all agreed that an operation 
was the only thing. One day a man 
told my husband of your remedy and 
that night he brought it home to me." 

Mayr's Wonderful Remedy gives per- 
manei^ results for stomach, liver and 
intestinal aliments. Eat as much and 
whatever you like. No more distress

Pledging its support before the city 
commissioners on the proposition of 
constructing a bridge over Chester 
creek between Eighth and Ninth 
streets, the Munger Improvement club 
last evening delegated three of its 
members. E. A. Schultz. C. T. Miller 
and W. W. Fenstermacher, to serve 
with C. S. Mitchell and J. E. Horak on 
a committee of five to wait upon the 
city commission and urge the improve- 
ment. The committee will probably at- 
tend a council meeting for that pur- 
pose early next week. 

It was reported at the meeting last 
evening that more than 100 signers 
had been secured to the petitions ask- 
ing for this improvement and that the 
petitioners resided on boih Sides of the 
ravine sought to be spanned. Petitions 
will be circulated within the next few 
days among the coal dealers, manufac- 
turers, wholesalers and other business 
man who are interested in bettering 
traffic conditions as affecting deliv- 
eries. It is pointed out that the bridge 
would be an aid to heavy hauls.

The bridge will cost about $37,000. If 
constructed along present plans. This 
figure, however, does not include the 
cost of grading, which is estimated at 
$2,200. The nioney for this improve- 
ment, it -la claimed, should come fram 
the general improvement fund in view 
of the fact that the biidge will serve

doctors agree these are prime requi-

Under such circumstances, Eckman's

To Decide Which Is Worse Epithet

Alexandri i,. Minn., Feb. 22.— Wheth- 
er the tern "damn liar" can cause a 
man as mu< h grief and mental suffer- 
ing as that of "thief." is a Question 
that may come before the district 
court here as the result of cases 
started by men living in Osakis. 

Ralph E. Lane started a suit against 
Attorney I . R- Ruggles of Osakis, 
charging that the attorney called hi^ 
a "thief," :»nd claiming that he was 
damaged bj the epithet to the extent 
of $2,000. I 1 a counter claim just filed 
Ruggles says that he was called a

buildings in the West end is now well 
under way. Several structures being 
erected for business purposes ' are In 
various stages of construction and are 
to be completed early in the coming 
spring or summer. 

The building of the basement for the 
handsome business block at Twenty- 
first avenue and Sui>erlor street Is 
about complete and before the end of 
this week a start will be made on the 
superstructure. The corner building, 

which will have a frontage of sixty 
feet on Superior street, will be three 
stories high and the building next to 
It will be two stones. 

The two-story building on Twen- 
tieth avenue, just back of the Colum- 
bia hall, being erected for Albert H. 
Polinsky, will be completed next month. 
Only the interior work remains to com- 
plete the building. 

Excavations for the buildings to be 
erected on Twenty-first avenue and 
First street for Swanstrom Brothers, 
and A. Hanson ha\'e been completed and 
the foundations are now well under 
way. These two buildings will cost 
about $20,000. 

KevT Stom on Third Street. 

Two handsome buildings are under 
construction on Third .*^treet. A store 1 
building Is being erected at a cost of ! 
$6,000 for Joseph Lee at Twenty-third

Quotations In all kinds of paper and 
stationery are soaring in consequence 
of the scarcity of various materials, 
brought about* through war conditions. 

Within the, last two months, paper 
prices have been advanced from 20 to 
50 per cent, arid in the opinion of deal- 
ers no limit can now be set as to 
where pr^e-es will eventually go. News 
print, wi-applng papers and coated 
book and colored papers have been 
most seriously affected thus far 
through pie shortage In supplies of 
sulphites, chlorine and other bleach- 
ing materials, and In the whole paper 
list manufacturers are quoting for ini- 
mediate delivery only, considering It 
dangerous t» tie themselves up in any 
future contracts. ^.. ». j 

Colored papers have been tho hard- 
est hit, some colors such as yellows, 
golden rods, dark blues and ox-blood 
reds being so difficult to obtain that 
thev may be off the market at any 
time. Prlce.s of wrapping papers have 
been almost doubled owing to the 
scarcity of sulphites. 

"Conditions such as exist today have 
never before been encountered In the 
paper trade/' said C U. Reitaii. nian- 
ager of the Duluth Paper & Station- 
ery company, today. "While prices of 
all lines, are advancing, consumption 
does not apuear to have been checked 
In the least.* .^V.e have never had as 
much business .on our books as we 
. have now for building and roofing pa- 
pers. TWe indications are for an ac-

Northwest this spring and dealers 
seem to be willing to pay the higher 
prices that are being a.«ked. Accord- 
ing to repprts we are receiving from 
o«r travelers, building operations in 
this territory are likely to be on a 
large scale during the coming season. 

Mr. Reitan pointed out that all sta- 
tlonerv and office supplies in which 
metal materials enter have been ad- 
vanced from 25 to 40 per cent, and

Chicago, 111., Feb. 18, 1916 





% Any Number At All, Duluth, Minn. 

DEAR folks:— Thought I'd drop you a few words to 
let you know how things are going with me. Every- 
thing is perfectly lovely and sim in the best of 
health. Business is exceptionally good, in fact, 
it's so good that I am seriously thinking of buying 
a Ford machine, but will wait a while for the present. 
Now the real reason for this letter is that I want 
to tip you off to a few things that I am sure will 
interest you. 

First of all I want to know if you have been 
attending regularly the last month or so the photo- 
plays that are being shown at the Zelda Theater. If 
not, why not? Has it ever occurred to you what you 
and the family are missing? If it hasn't, I"ll tell 
you, you are missing the greatest picture plays ever 
produced, and also an opportunity to see the big 
stage stars whom you have heard so much about, but 
couldn't afford the $1.50. 

Now don't take my word for it, but drop in there 
and see for yourself what splendid pictures they 
are showing. They are without question the best 
feature pictures I have ever seen, and I am sure that 
you will agree with me after once seeing them. 

By the way, I want to call your attention to a 
picture that I saw in one of the leading photoplay 
houses in Chicago the other day, the name of this 
film is "The Misleading Lady", and you may well 
believe me when I tell you it's one of the greatest 
of its kind that I have ever seen, and I have seen 
quite a few. I paid 50 cents to see this feature, 
but it was well worth the price. 

I notice in the news columns of your local papers 
that it is going to be shown at the Zelda theater 
for three days, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday of 
this week. Take a tip from me and don't miss it, as 
I know you will enjoy it. Henry B. Walthall, who is 
claimed to be the greatest of all screen stars and 
was the leading actor in that wonderful play, 'The 
Birth of a Nation', has the title role and is 
assisted by Edna Mayo, who is said to be the hand- 
somest actress in motion pictures. I could go on and 
tell you a lot more about this- remarkable film, but 
haven't got the time, only let me repeat again DON'T 
MISS IT. Well I must close now, but will write 
you again next week, hoping that everybody is well 

and with best wishes , I am

What to Do to Get Fat 
and Increase Welglit 

The Rear Cause of Thinness 

Most people eat from four to six 
pounds of good solid fat-making food 
every day and still do not Increase In 
weight one ounce, while on the other 
hand many ol the plump, chunky folks 
eat very lightly and keep gaining all 
the time. It's all bosh to say that this 
is the nature of the Individual. It 
Isn't Nature's way at all. 

Most thin people stay thin because 
their powers of assimilation are defec- 
tive. They absorb just enough of the 
food they eat to maintain life and a 
semblance of health and strength. 
Stuffing won't help them. A dozen 
meals a day won't make them gain a 
single "stay there" pound. All the fat- 
producing elements of their food just 
stay there in the Intestines until they 
pass from the body as waste. What 
such people need is something that will 
prepare these fatty food elements so 
that their blo^d can absorb them and 
deposit them, all about the body — 
something, tob, that will multiply their 
red blood corpuscles and increase their 
blood's carryjng- power. 

For such a condition It Is well to 
recommend eating a Sargol tablet with 
every meal' Sargol Is not. as some be- 
lieve, a patented drug, but is simply a 
careful combination of six of the most 
effective wnd 'powerful assimilative and 
flesh-bull<|yif|..'el<''raent8 known to chem- 
istry It ,l8 -absolutely harmless, yet 
has been iJwQr<d erf ully effective and a 
single tablet gfiten with each meal oft- 
en, according to reports of users, has 
the effect of increasing the weight of a 
thin man pr Voman from three to five 
pounds a ^eek. Sargol Is .sold by Boyce 
Drug sto^e *tid other good druggists 
everywhei'^ otV a positive guarantee of 
weight infcfeai© or money back.

Nearly 50 Per Cent of Colors 

Used in U. S. Are 

Made Here. 

That American producers of dye- 
stuffs are making progress is attested 
In returns showing that they are now 
turning out approximately 60 per cent 
of the color normally consumed In this 

a strong enough position to hold their 
own after the war is over. The opinion 
was expressed by a leading dyestuffs 
authority last summer that if a gain 
of 50 per cent in output could be made 
by the end of the year to bring pro- 
duction up to 30 per cent of home 
needs. It was as much as could possibly 
be expected. The actual gain in fin- 
ished dyes has, however, been about 
160 per cent, while the gain in the pro- 
duction of the intermediates has been 

One of the Immediate difficulties fac- 
ing the maker of dyes is the high price 
of the dye bases. Benzol, toluol, sul- 
phuric acids and other products neces- 
sary to make colors are selling at 
prices undreamed of a year ago. An- 
other problem Is that of securing the 
services of a competent corps of 
trained chemical experts.

Remedy Fr escribed 

By Many Doctors 


Compound of Simple Laxa- 
tive Herbs Proves Most 

Dr. W. A. Evans, writing for the 
Chicago Tribune, makes the assertion 
that practically everyone, at some 
time or other, suffers from constipa- 
tion. This applies regardless of age 
or condition in life. 

The congestion of stomach waste 
in the bowels is evidenced in various 
wavs; bloat, eructation of foul stom- 
ach gases, sick headache, langour, all 
indicate constipation, and call fofj 
prompt attention, not only to relieve) 
the present discomfort but also to i 
avoid possible disease that follows 
neglect of this important function. 

Harsh cathartics and violent purga- 
tives should not be employed, as these 
afford only temporary relief, while 
they serve to shock the entire system. 
A mild laxative such as Dr. Caldwell's 
Syrup Pepsin is far preferable and is 
now the remedy generally used and 
prescribed by many doctors. It is 
I free from opiate or narcotic drugs, 
I acts easily and pleasantly, without 
! griping or other pain and i.s a safe, 
effective family remedy. 

Mr. Chas Schell. 132 Chwrch St., 
Grenada. Miss., writes that he found 


relief himself by using Dr. Caldwell's 
Sj'rttp Pepsin and now keeps it on 
hand for family use. A bottle of Dr. 
Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin should have 
a place in every family medicine 
chest. A trial bottle can be obtaint^,^ 
free of charge, by writing to Dr. W. !

Xovrl Feature of Defrnse. 

A novel feature of the (Jerman de- 
fence in this section is that the troops 
are composed almost entirely of crack* 
cavalry regiments, numbering high 
nobles among their officers. A short 
time ago they would have scoffed at 
the idea of being dismounted, but now 
they Hve cheerfully in part or wholly 
lindergrotmd, riding their horses only 
Tor sport in improvised hippodromes. 

The lot of the troops on this north 

Bition will be flooded out.

Weather Man Says Con- 
siderable Drop May Occur 
By Morning. 

Xo weather map Is issued today by 
H. W. Richardson, weather forecaster, 
owing to the fact that Washington's 
birthday is a legal holiday, but that 
does not preclude the fact that there 
will be weather just the same; and the 
brand predicted is as follows: 

"Partly cloudy tonight and Wednes- 
day. Colder tonight, the lowest tem- 
perature tonight bfing 5 degs. above 
at and near Duluth-Superlor and along 
the north shore; and about zero on the 
iron ranges. Moderate northwest 

Mr. Richardson gives the shippers' 
forecast as follows: 

"Protect shipments against temper- 
atures north and west, of about zero 
to 6 degs. above: and east and south, 
6 to 16 degs. above zero." 

He comments on weather conditions 
as follows: 

"A disturbance centered over Mis- 
souri and Kansas has caused rain or 
snow In the Southwest and the Far 
West, and much higher temperatures 
over Central Valley states, lake re- 
gion. New England and Eastern Can- 
ada. A high pressure area over East- 
ern Montana and Western North Da- 
kota Is attended by a turn to colder, 
which Includes the greater portion of 
the Northwest, the lowest reported 
temperature being 2 degs. below at 
Minnedosa, Man. At the Head of the 
Lakes, the thermometer is apt to drop 
considerably by Wednesday morning."

stopped by a broken air pipe, Engineer

have been seen under the wreckage. 
Body Cat to Plerr*. 

It Is said that the flagman of No. 
79 lost his life in a futile attempt to 
stop the special, running up the track 
so close to the engine that he could 
not escape. His body was cut to 
pieces. The rear end collision followed 
a moment later. 

The Connecticut river special No. 79 
had stopped about a mile and a half 
east of Indian river bridge because of 
a broken air pipe. The flagman went 
back with his red flag. No. 79 was 
drawn by a motor while the special, 
which had been made up at New 
Haven shortly after the other train 
left was drawn by a locomotive. It 
approached the stalled train at a good 
headway, it is said, and as yet it is 
unknown whether Engineer Curtis ap- 
plied his brakes upon seeing the flag- 
man's warning. , 

At the time of the collision a freight 
train was running west on the next 
track. When the smash came a pas- 
senger coach was forced over against 
the freight train, adding to the mixup. 
Bolirr EaxplodeK. 

The boiler of the engine drawing the 
special exploded, throwing wreckage 
in every direction, especially upon the 
moving freight train. 

The engine of the special was 
thrown down the embankment and was 
followed by the first two coaches. 
These rolled over and over before 
touching the bottom. The tracks 
withfn a moment were piled high witli 
wreckage, beneath which could be seen 
the bodies of a man and a woman. 
Most of the people in the special were 
from Hartford and New Haven and 
way points. 

Injured passengers are being taken 
by special trains both to New Haven 
and Bridgeport.

"We. the Jurors sworn to inquire

I I then purchased more Swamp-Root

Amendment to Indian Bill 

Would Secure White 

Earth Tract. 

From The Herald Waehlniton Bureau. 
Washington, Feb. 22. — An amendment 
will be added to the Indian appropri- 
ation bill in the senate providing for 

the sale to Manohmen county for a 
farm demonstration station of an 80- 
acre tract of land formerly used as 
school for White Earth Indian children, 
at the instance of Senator Knute Nel- 
1 son. The provision is the same that is 
I embodied in a bill presented by Repre- 
\ sentative .Steenenson. It authorizes the 
' sale of the property to Manohrnen 
county at its appraised value. Repre- 
sentative Steenerson and Senator Nel- 
son believe there is a better chance to 
get the legislation as an amendment to 
the Indian appropriation bill than as a 
separate measure.

"That's funny," he said after he had 
looked the thing over. •'The strings

Amateurs Delight Big Audience 

In Clever Vaudeville Program 

Carrying out the Washington's birth- 
day idea, Edward F. Kelley, the Inter- 
locutor, wore a Colonial costume and 
powdered wig, in the minstrel show, 
which was one of the ten acts of 
vaudeville which the Knights of Co- 
lumbus gave last night in the Cathedral 
auditorium. The minstrels closed w^lth 
the singing of '•A Little Home In the 

U. S. A.," and at the last verse a large 
American flag was unfurled at the 
back of the stage. 

A big audience attended the success- 
ful performance which w^lil be repeat- 
ed tonight. The proceeds of the enter- 
tainments will be added to the Knights 
of Columbus building fund. 

The program opened with an over- 

ture by Michaud's orchestra. This was 
followed by a one-act comedy, "A Min- 
ister Pro Tem," in which John Allen 
played the part of "Joseph Santly," 
Miss Mary Schulte, "Peggy," his daugh- 
ter; Miss Louise Lyons, "Bridget," the 
maid: Charles McDonnell, "Jim Dal- 
ton," the burglar; Mike Cronln, "Mike 
Flannlgan," the cop. and John Doe, 
"Rev. WMlliam Santly." After the 
burglar, who pretended to be the min- 
ister, disappeared, leaving the bank 
notes with Peggy, the real Rev. Wil- 
liam Santly came on the stage and ful- 
filled all of Peg's fears that he would 
be "Impossible."

'•Yes, that's a very pretty and a very 
smart dress," said the lady I some- 
times go shopping with, In anawer to 
the saleswoman's enthusiasm about 
a little gown she had been trying on. 
"And that's just what's the matter 
with It. It's too pretty and too 

The saleswoman looked a,s if she 
were finding 't difficult to hide her 
doubt of her customer's sanity. M[y- 
sclf, I wasn't' altogether sure what ' 
she meant and asked her as soon as 
we were out of ear-shot of the scan- 
dalized clerk. 

She Coalda*t Stand the Contrast. 

••I mean that It's prettier and amart- 
er than I am, and therefore I don't 
like it," she explained. "I can't afford 
to wear such a strikingly pretty, 
bright-colored gown any more than I 
could afford to let myself be constantly 
contrasted with a strikingly pretty 
high-colored woman. They both make 
me look pale and Insignificant, and I i 
don't want to look insignificant. I have 
a style of my own (though I say it as 
shouldn't), but It isn't a style that can 
stand that sort of contrast." 

"Too pretty a gown" sounded 
startling at first, but the more I 
thought of it, the more I realized how 
right she was. 

And when she finally bought a soft, 
silvery grey gown with just the right 
touch of rose color, a gown that was 
dainty rather than pretty, and quaint 
rather than smart, a gown that seemed 
to rhvme with her whole personality, 
I realized her rightness even more. 
How Often a Gown Makes Its Wearer

When you stop to think of It In that

One would not think of putting purple 
trimniiufis on a green gown; yet some 

of the contrasts between the gown and 
the woman in it are just as grating 
to a sensitive persons as the conflict 
between purple and green. 

A gown should strike the same gen-

up of a home, the setting of a table, 
the selecting of a g'own are all op- 
portunities for the artistic Impulse

that will give pleasure. 

Of course. If a woman is clever

With My Letter Friends. 

Question — "Wny do husbands always 
say their wives look shabbily dressed 
and admire their neighbors' wives, yet 
never furnish enough money to buy 
pr?tty dresses? 

Answer — Because husbands, like a 
good many other human beings, want 
to get something for nothing.

P. W. Casey as ••Mutt," and Law- 
rence Dronin as "Jeff," gave a clever 
sketch with local hits. Mutt was aa 
loose-jointed as Bud Fisher has pic- 
tured . him and Jeff was true to hl» " 
model, even to the feet. 

In :he minstrel show^. Edward F. 
Kelley, the interlocutor, was assisted 
In keeping the fun going by James S. 
Lynn and John Doran, the principal 
end men, who wore decidedly effective 
black and white costumes, and by Ed- 
win Casey and Elden Morris, the sec- 
ond men, whose green, yellow, black 
and red suits were none the less Im- 
pressionistic. Mr. Doran sang "Ala- 
bama Jubilee;" Mr. Morris, "Back Home 
in Tennessee;" Mr. Lynn, '•The Daugh- 
ter of Mother Machree," and Mr. 
Casey. "When You're Down in Louis- 
ville." George Getsey sang and danced 
••The Eagle Walk," William Lyn.Jtt 
gave "Rocky Road to Dublin," and J. 
E. Coates, "I'm a Lonesome Melody." 
Other minstrel men were E. J. Baun- 
vage, Leonard McHugh. John L. Golca, 
F W Bordeleau, W. J. Doherty. Philip 
a' Landry. James Patt. Paul Van Hov- 
en, Walter Zellman. John Bellanger 
and Albert Furlong. 

Joseph M. Golden, who directed the 
entire entertainment, told humorous 
stories and gave some excellent imper- 

''Anto Boys and Girls." 

The "Auto Boys and Girls" were Miss 
Evelytv Blais, Miss Anna Dion, Miss 
Frances Kern, James Patt, Ed Grignon 
and Bert Walz. In their first number 
they carried suitcases on which were 
large white letters that spelled ••Du- 
luth." In their second act they sang 
a •'Ford" song as the men steered 
safely in machines made of two chairs. 

"The Woman of the Future," took 
place In the "woman's" apartments 
In New York in 1999. When the cur-

wearing a light blue negligee and cap, 
was sewing for the baby. He begged 
with his wife, Jean. (Miss Yvonne 
Dauplaise) not to go to the club but 
to take him to see Bernhardt, who 
was making her farewell tour. But 
Jean, worried by business, said Bern-

An Unfailing Way 

To Banish Hairs 

(Beauty Notes) 

Ugly hairy growths can be removed 
In the privacy of your own home If 
you get a small original package of 
delatone and mix into a paste enough 
of the powder and water to cover tho 
hairy surface. This should be left on 
the skin about 2 minutes, then re- 
moved and the skin washed and every 
trace of hair will have vanished. No 
harm or inconvenience can result 
from this treatment, but be sure you 
buy real delatone. — Advertisement.

the time. A» a striking contrast to 
the business-like Jean, who wore a 
severely tailored sun and a "topper," 
and carried a cane, was Florence (Afiss 
Mae Cierry), who wore a Bilk and tulle 
Kown and lace hat. Florence told 
the mere .man that ho needed love, 
painted tl.e joys of a trip to Venice 
and won her point.

engines between the verses of their 

Sehool Sketeh. 
The vaudeville closed with "The 
German Teacher and His Klever Kom- 
edy Kids." The teacher, Heinte 
Schwartz (Harold Kelly) enforced a 
degree of discipline by hitting the 
hi>yB with the Irish Standard which 
Jpadore OBrien ( W. C. Toben) said 
felt like the Saturday Evening Post. 
Percy Darling (Arthur Kinderman), 
was what his name suggested. As his 
ipecial stunt he added a red helmet 
[o his ladylike costume, brandished a 
itchet and sang about the Joys of be- 
tig a firenian. Daisy Short (Mfss 
"ta rearet Lydon) gave several clever 
TJongs and dances, and with Fluffy 
Ruffles (Miss Anna Lydon) and Mary 
Long (Miss May Spencer) gave a trio. 
Bpike Dugan (Kdward Grignon\ was 
the "tough kid" of the school and

proficiency in throwing paper wad%. 
Blivers Hogan (George Sauve) gave bis 
almost undivided attention to a stick 
of licorice. Fritz Schultz (Bert Walz) 
answered roll call with "Here I iss,

All-Girl Show Has Many Bright Fea- 
tures of Much Merit. 

".«5omething different" about elz'^s up 
the new ali-glrl show that began a 
three-days' engagement at the Grand 
theater yesterday. Every act and pic- 
ture was well re< eived, and if one or 
two failed to register as well as the 
others, this fact was overlooked be- 
cause of the novelty of the program 
and the merit of the leading acts. 
Crowded houses both afternoon and 
evening made the management wish 
that the theater was larger, as people 
have been turned away for the last 
three days. 

There are two headline vaudeville 
acts, Grace de Winters, ventriloquist, 
and the Six Tasmanians, whirlwind I 
tumblers and acrobats. The six girls 
are apparently slsterf, and all work In 
perfect harmony In performing many 
daring and thrilling athletic feats. 

Grace de Winters Is doubly Interest- 
ins: — first, because she Is a girl ven- 
triloquist, and secondly, because she Is 
a much better ventriloquist than the 
ordinary. Those In the audience who 
have grown tired of the trite ventrilo- 
quial stunts that have been going 
around the vaudeville circuits for 
years, were pleased to see something 
different. Imitations of Irene Frank- 
lin. Hary Lauder and Eva Tanguay 
were remarkably clever, and the lul- 
laby pong at the close of her act was 
thoroughly enjoyed. 

Howard and Sadler, two girls with 
excellent voices, present a number of 
popular songs and coon dialect sejec- 
tlons that bring forth storms of ap- 
plause. Encores and flow* rs were lib- 
erally contributed to these clever en- 

Beach and Lynn have a humorous

"The Dragnet." a three-reel feature

the workings of the city detectives are 
well portrayed. There are several 
other films of interest.

PEATIRKD IN of "How Molly Made 
ORPHKl M FILM <Jood," the feature 
film, which will be 
shown at the Orpheum-Strand tonight 
and tomorrow for the last time. 

"How Molly Made Good" Is replete 
with human Interest, strong drama and 
delightful comedy. 

Its big appeal is made through per- 
sonality and plenty of it. In fact sel- 
dom before has there been suoh a mar- 
shaling of personality Into any screen 
offering as In this particular six-reel 
film, which gives at Intrinsic part of 
Its story a glim — Into the home and 
family of twelve of Broadway's big- 
gest and best-loved stars. 

It Is a new Leo Ditrichsteln. which 
the public finds In "How Molly Made 
Good" — an out-of-doors human person 
with a great love of flowers and a 
pruning fork Instead of a stick of 
grease paint In hand. Even Henrietta 
rrosman, great artist that she Is, is 
paring apples on her piazza when the 
pixth reel of film flashes the public 
up to her home In Wilton, Conn. And 
so the story goes on down the line — 
past Robert Edeson, Cyril Scott, Lulu 
Gla.ser. Henry Kolker. Julia Dean. Jul- 
ian Eltlnge, May Robson, Charles Ross, 
Mabel Fenton and Mme. Fjorde of the 
Royal opera, Berlin. Each and every- 
one is pictured In the same Intimate 

Commencing Thursday and continu- 
ing for four days the powerful dra- 
matic picture, "Life Without Soul," 
adapted from the classic. "Franken- 
stein," will be offered, with the added 
feature of the Gibbons-Ahearn fight 



"The Misleading I.Ady," a five-act 
photoplay adapted by H. H. Sheldon 
from the drama of the same name with 
Henry B. Walthall, "the Mansfield of 
the movies," and Kdnn Mayo in the 
leading roles, will be the feature pic- 
ture offering at the Zelda for three 
davs, commencing with tomorrow ma- 
tinee. "The Misleading Lady" Is a 
psychological study of reversion to 
type. It Is dear to lovers of lovers 
because it portrays a wooing that 
Bcorns conventions. 

In the drama are the throbs of pas- 
sion, raw and unrestrained. There is 
the situation in which the brute man 
hides in evening dress and captures 
the cultured and sheltered girl. 

And then there is the gradual rever- 
sion to the cave woman, in which the

"THE BIRD OF known and popular 
P.AKADISE" play, 'The Bird of 

RETVRM.XG Paradise." by Richard 
Walton Tully. author 
of "Omar, the Tentmaker. " This will 
be th^ third visit for this attractive 
play of Hawaii, and tach time It seems 
to gain new friends. The story that 
Mr. Tully has woven around this dra- 
ma of real life, Is Intense and at the 
same time interestiuK. There are four 
characters In the play and ail the rest 
of the players simply revolve around 
them and help to make the interesting: 
sta^e pictures. 

Produced as It is by Oliver Morosco, 
every detail In both scenery, ligrhting 
effects and proptrtits has been per- 
sonally supervised by him. He will 
introduce a new comer to the theater 
followers of this city in the leading: 
role of Luana. Miss Carlotta Monterey, 
a young: actress from California, who 
last season was seen in the leading 
role In "Taking Chances" at the Thir- 
ty-ninth street theater, Xew York. She 
will have the support of an excep- 
tionally larg:e cast, among: whom are 
Hoop<^r I^ Atchley, Roberta Arnold, 
I Richard <iordon, Robert Morris, Laura 
j Adams. James Nelson, Fanny Yantis, 
I George P. Webst^-r and a score of oth- 
ers, including the quintet of native 
Hawaiian singers and players, who 
render the soft sweet music of the isl- 
ands with so much effect. 

One of the reasons of the big suc- 
cess of "The Bird of Paradise' is that 
there has only been or^e company on 
the road and it has never been done In 
"moving pictures." There will be a 
popular matinee on Wednesday and the 
usual matinee on Saturday. This will 
probably be the last time that this 
play ;wlll be seen here for a few years 
as the comnany will sail for Europe 
early In August for a tour abroad.

Why go limping around with aching, 
puffed-up feet — feet so tired, chafed, 
sore and swollen you can hardly get 
your shoes on or off? W^hy don't you 
get a 25-cent box of "Tiz" from the 
drug store now^ and gladden your tor-

"Tiz" makes your feet glow with 
comfort; takes dow^n swellings and 
draws the soreness and misery right 
out of feet that chafe, smart and 
burn. "Tiz" instantly stops pain in 
corns, callouses and bunions. "Tiz" is 
glorious for tired, aching, sore feet.

A Sure Way To 

End Dandruff 

There is one sure way that has 
never failed to retnove dandruff at 
once, and that Is to dissolve It, then 
you destroy It entirely. To do this, 
just get about four ounces of plain, 
common liquid arvon from any drug 
store (this ts all you will need), ap- 
ply It at night when retiring; use 
enough to mpisten the scalp and rub 
it In gently with the finger tips. 
i By morning, most if not all, of .your 
dandruff will be gone, and three or 
four more applications wHl completely 
dissolve and entirely destroy every 
single trace of It, no matter how much 
dandruff you may have. 

You will find all itching and dig- 
ging of the scalp will stop instantly, 
and your hair will be fluffy, lustrous, 
glossy, silky and soft, and look and 
feel a hundred times better. — Adv«r«

than that the keynote of the Republican 
national campaign of 1916 should have been 
sounded by Elihu Root.

Mr. Coiigdon and other members oi the 
city chatter commission pointed out last" 
night the one serious mistake that has 
been made by the men elected in Duluth 
under the commission form of govern- 
ment. This mistake, which consists of un- 
duly emphasizing the direct responsibility 
of each commissioner for his department 
to the prejudice of the joint responsibility 
of all five for all departments, has been 
made from the beginning, and is still be- 
ing made. 

So far, no great evil has come of it, but 
great evil could come, and the commis- 
sioners will be wise if they abandon this 
misconception of the very heart and spirit 
of the commission plan. 

The commissioner who heads a depart- 
ment does not do it in his own independ- 
ent right, but as an agent of the whole 
commission. By heading a department the 
commissioner accepts direct responsibil- 
ity for its operations, so that the people 
may know whom to praise or blame: but 
he does not deprive the other fodr com- 
missioners of all responsibility, or of any 
of their responsibility. While Commis- 
Btoner No. i is titular head of the depart- 
ment of public affairs, for instance, the en- 
tire commission is a board in full charge of 
and responsible for that department, as of 
all the others. 

To divide the government into "fi've one- 
man departments," as Mr. Congdon put it, 
is to invite disunion and demoralization 
and logrolling methods. If these things 
have not come, they are certainly coming. 
The Herald says this as a friend of the 
commission government in its present 
form, and as a friend of the commission. 
It has said it before on several occasions, 
and may have to say it again. 


Washington's birthday, too, is a splendid 
occasion for drawing a new inspiration of 
patriotism from the noble fount that made 
so glorious the early history of this land 
of the free. 

Theie were few who offered themselves 
to the service of the patriot cause who had 
so much to risk as George Washington. 
The owner of comfortable broad acres, a 
rich man for. his time, his potential sacri- 
fice w IS not only of his life but of the rich 
ancestral estates that to many were dearer 
than life itself. Many of his class — if not 
most — were loyalists, or Tories, and re- 
fused to hazard their lives and fortunes 
with the patriot cause. There seems never 
to have been a moment when George 
Washington thought of anything but 
throw iig himself into the fight for free- 
dom nith all his heart and soul. 

If he iiad reasoned more coldly, and with- 
held lis aid, perhaps some other would 
have lisen in his stead; but it is difficult to 
imagine' anybody who could have with- 
stood the appalling discouragements of the 
early years of the war. who could have car- 
ried the cause of Revolution through the 
winte • at Valley Forge, who could virtu- 
ally 1 ave created by his own strength of 
character the force which made success 
possil'le in the end. 

It vas this spirit of sacrifice, of unre- 
served consecration to his country's cause, 
that made Washington great and that, dis- 
playe i by others of lesser note, made sub- 
Inne the tragic birth of this nation. 

HoA- much of that spirit we have today 
we could not know without a test — which 
God forefend! We have citizens who will 
not even sacrifice the slight trouble it takes 
to vote. We have many who will not take 
the trouble to vote with knowledge and 
undei standing. We have citizens who seem 
to h>ld other matters higher than their 

But too much attention to these types is 
Hkel) to breed an unwarranted pessimism. 
If the test came, there would be plenty of 
patri >tism. The great need is of patrioti- 
ism hat does not wait for the excitement 
of a great crisis. 

That is why these holidays that com- 
memorate the glories of the nation's origin 
ought to be more deeply consecrated. 

Tbat is why on Lincoln's birthday we 
should think more deeply of the signific- 
ance of the spirit of Lincoln in the national 
life- -and in thinking of Lincoln we should 
thinl; of the millions who sacrificed and 
suffered that the nation might live. 

That is why on Washington's birthday 
we i-hould think more deeply of the mean- 
ing >f Washington and his service to free- 
dom and of the patriot fathers who suf- 
fered and died that freedom might live. 
Tliat is why in Independence day we 
shot Id think more deeply of the COST of 

If we think more deeply on these mat- 
ters, we ^shall inevitably be more deter- 
min -d that no harm, however slight, shall 
come to the nation and the national spirit 
whi< h they typify. 

Washington. Feb. 22— (Special VIF^^ 
Iferald.) — When President Wilson n4^|fled 
Louis D. Branidels to be associate Justice of 
the supreme court it occasioned a panic in 
certain quarters. The "malefactors oir great 
wealth" were thrown into a state oflpit^ble 
dismay. It was generally predicted that the 
United States senate would confirm .^«^«,p- 
polntment of no man to a seat Oft -^hat 
bench ovpr the veto of Wall Street. . It was 
stigmatized as a play of politics on the part 
of the president. It was asserted that Mr. 
Brandels. while a learned »nd emln«»t law- 
yer, was devoid .of the "Judicial tempera- 
ment" and unfit for the place, though his 
personal integrity and purity of private life 
are admitted. 

It was laughable — the consternation that 
got poss<>ssion of some aenaturs and some 
newspapers. Brandels wa« denounced as a 
Socialist for no other reason than that he 
had defeated some schemes of monopoly to 
rob the people. An excuse was hatched 
which it was hoped would ailow the Pro- 
gressive Republicans — Cummins, Clapp, Ken- 
kon. Norris, Borah, et al — to vote against 
confirmation. And what do you t^ilnk it 
w«k8? Why. that Brandels is a henchman 
of Wall Street, as was shown when he as- 
se>nted to a sniall increase of freight rates 
by the trunk line railroads. It will scarcely 

Then it was proposed to Invoke the aid of 
"senatorial courtesy," an awful savage weap- 
on by the way. but it Is thought that the 
courage of the two Massachusetts senators 
cannot be serowed up to the sticking point. 
Lodge Is a candidate for re-election, and 
Massachusetts Is full of laboring men. all 
enthusiastic In their confidence in and ad- 
miration for Brandels. Weeks is a candi- 
date for president, and here is the butt-out 
of his party — if that amalgamation works — 
the Progressives, practically solid for Bran- 
dels. It is a heap to expect from the two 
Massachusetts senators — political suicide for 

the sake of Wall Street. 

« • • 
There is not the slightest doubt In the 
world that if the voters of the United Siat>'s 
were to pass upon the nomination of Mr. 
Brandels for member of the supreme court 
It would be confirmtd by a majority reach- 
ing Into the millions. A political appoint- 
ment: Abraham Lincoln appointed Salmon 
P. Chase chief justice of that court to get 
him out of the way as a candidate for presi- 
dent. U. S. Grant appointed Bradley and 
Strong to that bench to reverse a decision 
handed down by that same Chase that- In- 
volved a political question — the status of the 
paper currency kn.»wn as the Greenback. 
John M. Harlans opinion in the Income tax 
case wa.<i a stump speech that WilUajn J. 
Bryan would have applauded every aentence 
of. Samuel F. Miller, who disputes with 
the present chl^f Justice for the distinction 
of being the greatest jurist that bench has 
known since Taney, dipped into politics de.p 
enough to give the wink to the Republican 
leaders to have the statute authorising the 
appeal In the McArdle case repealed, but for 
which the entire Southern Reconstruction in- 
famy would have been declared unconstitu- 
tional, and that repeal of the law was con- 
summated by fraud and deceit, by lying on 
the part of a very great Republican states- 
man from Ohio, who successfully worked 
the cheat by means of a seemingly Innocent 
rider on a general appropriation bill, and not 
one Democrat In either house had th« slight- 
est idea what Its Import waa. 

Brandels cant beat that for politics even 
If he should try. Then he is but one, and 
the full beach Is made up of nine. He must 
be a devil of a fellow If he Is able to de- 
stroy the Constitution and revolutionize the 
government all by himself when he Is only 
one-ninth of the court. Nobody who ever 
saw Brandels believes that he is a very 
dangerous man. and most of us think that 
he will make a very great judge. 
• • • 
I do not beMeve Mr. Wilson was playing 
politics when he made the nomination: but 
If he did, he is a consummate master of the 
game. Had he played both harf&s It could 
not have resulted more to his advantage. If 
the opponents of Brandels had set abgiut to 
strengthen him In public opinion and In sen- 
atorial opinion they could not have Improved 
on their methods. At first they sneered at 
him because he is a Jew; but they soon 
dropped that foolishness. Then the "Inter- 
ests" began to bestir themselves and thus 
they made It very embarrassing for their 
senatorial friends, anci made it impossible 
for the Progressive Republicans to oppose 

Ben Tillman said it was a good answer to 
the Gary dinner. Be that as it may, it is 
the answer the people would have made to 
that affair. There Is but one way to play 
the game of politics with complete success, 
and it Is this: Act so as to deserve success. 
: That is what WMlson did when he named 
Brandels for the supreme court. 

When Elihu Root takes his time and puts 
pen to paper, the result is apt to be some- 
thinsT notable. His speech at the Republican 
state convention yesterday — really a speech 
to the country, actually Intended as a rally- 
ing cry for his party In the coming presi- 
dential campaign — was the performance of 
a master. In style, in ordered thought, in 
close argument. In disdain for rhetorical 
fripperies, it stands out above all our cur- 
rent political oratory. As a powerful at- 
tack upon the president, it leaves the 
shrillest assaults of Mr. Roosevelt looking 
cheap. It Is the deep baying of a mas- 
tiff as against the yelping of a terrier. 
Even one compelled to dissent from much 
that Mr. Root said, and to criticize his ad- 
dress sharply, cannot refuse the tribute of 
intellectual exhilaration in reading a 
speech so consummate in form and bo 
weighty In matter. 

Mr. Root appeals to reason. To reason let 
us go. Is his review of the Wilson admin- 
istration, apart from Mexico, apart from 
the European war, one that can be sub- 
mitted to reasonable men as anything but 
the work of a partisan and an advocate? 
We think not. His statements about the 
Underwood tariff are hollow. They would 
not bear the weight of the volume contain- 
ing the schedules of that tariff, or of a 
statistical abstract reporting the figures of 
its actual operation. And what about the 
fairness of a man who haa not a word to 
say about the great achlevemerft of this 
Democratic administration, the reform of 
our banking and currency system? Perhaps 
the reason Mr. Root kept silent about this 
was his mortified remembrance of the fact 
that he made a speech against the bank- 
ing bin. In which he was Just as cocksure 
and sweeping as he was yesterday, but In 
every essential prediction has been proved 
by time to have been absolutely wrong. 
Another oversight of his Is inexcusable. 
He never mentioned the repeal of the law 
fixing discriminatory tolls for the Panama 
canal. In this, Mr. Root, as senator, was 
deeply interested. He spoke and wrote and 
fought for repeal. So doing he set himself 
against Roosevelt and against Taft. And 
nothing but the moral courage of Presi- 
dent Wilson, In using all his authority and 
risking his prestige, induced congress to 
act so as to vindicate what Mr. Root him- 
self then called our national honor. But 
now he ha.^ forogtten all this! A skilled ad- 
vocate, making out the best case he can, 
might so forget, but can one coming 
forward In the guise of a severe judge and 
a lofty patriot? 

Arraignment of President Wilson's policy 
towards Mexico Is easy. We do not say 
that some parts of Mr. Roofs attack upon 
it are not justified. The Vera Cruz expedi- 
tion never had a satisfactory defense. But 
on the whole question. Mr. Root sets up Re- 
publican ability as against Democratic In- 
competence. He describes In bitter terms 
the outrages upon Americans in Mexico con- 
sequent upon the revolution. He says: 
"That was the" situation w^hen Mr. Wilson 
became president." Yes, the outrages had 
been going on for a year or more under a 
Republican president. But did Mr. Taft do 
any of the things which Mr. Root now says 
ought instantly to have been done? When 
a Republican president urged Americans to 
leave their homes on American soil so as 
not to be killed by Mexican bullets across 
the border, did Mr. Root hang his head in 
shame? He was then In the senate. Did 
he ever offer a resolution or make a speech 
setUng forth his indignation, and urging 
the policy which he now declares to be the 
only one for true patriots? If he can point 
to anything of the kind in the Congression- 
al Record, we shall be glad to reprint it. 
That Mr. Root's speech will be hailed as 
an unanswerable Indictment of President 
Wilson and the Democratic party is certain. 
Under this banner the Republican party 
will go Into the campaign. Not that it will 
nominate Root. If nominated, he could noU 
be elected. Ask Roosevelt. But Roofs 
ideas have at present possession of his fel- 
low-partisans. They are preparing to stake 
everything on attacking Wilson personally 
as a weak and recreant American. They 
may succeed. But they are taking peril- 
ous chances. This is but February. Jun« 
may be different. If by election day fickle 
popular feeling in this country shall have 
come round to the belief that Wilson has 
done the best thing for the country, in 
the face of a world-w^ar. what will become 
of his opponents if they have put all their 
eggs In one basket — and the wrong basket 

at that?

A typical example of the flamboyant po- 
litical oratory which ignores facts and de- 
pends on sheer audacity of statement Ajff 
carry conviction was presented to tho 
Young Men's Republican club at Conven- 
tion hall Monday night by Henry D. Esta- 
brook. Here is one paragraph from his ad- 

. The Wilson -Underwood tariff act 
went Into oporatlon in October. 1911. 
The European war broke out in Au- 
gust. 1914. Need I tell you what hap- 
pended to us in those ten months? 
Need I enumerate the argosies, hulks, 
bulks, bales and mountain heaps of 
foreign products dumped upon our 
market almost instanter? Need I tell 
you of the ^ide devastation that im- 
mediately followed? If the combined 
armies of Europe and Asia had Invaded • 
our shores and bombarded our millR 
they could not have put them out oft. 
commission more quickly or com-«^^^ 

The assembled high protectionists rfiust 
have shuddered in horror as they thought 
of the awful calamity thus described. 

Of course the orator didn't burden hi* 
brilliant address with any specific facts or 
figures, for they would have Interfered 
with the rythmic and resonant flow of fine 

But If the records had been quoted, the 
audience would have known that with all 
these "argosies, hulks, bulks. bales and 
mountain heaps of foreign products dumped 
on our market," the aggregate importations 
of merchandise from November, 1913, to 
June, 1914, Inclusive, were 10 per cent more 
than In the corresponding period of the 
preceding year, before the present tariff act 
was passed. Appalling, isn't It? 

As for the American factories being put 
"completely out of business" by these "enor- 
mous" Imports, a reference to the records 
will show^ that the country's bank clearings 
in the eight months ending June 30. 1914 — 
following the new tariff law. were three- 
tenths of 1 per cent less than In the cor- 
responding period of the preceding year! 

It is unkind, of course, thus to puncture 
the bubbles of orator>- with such inconse- 
quential things as facts and figures, but 
there are always some inconsiderate per- 
sons In the World who insist on doing this.

Eberhart is willing to perjure himself Ju

IiMig:lnK for « 30-Cent Meal. 

Philadelphia Public Ledger: A girl earn- 
ing 16 a week said to an investigator of the 
Consumers' league: "Sometimes I just long 
for a good 30-cent meal. But I never have 
the price in my pocketbook. I get so tired 
of these 15-cent meals year in and year out. 
that I often think Id rather not eat at all." 

Those who take their food, their roof and 
their clothes for granted do not always find 
It easy to assume the point of view or «hose 
who must think all the way round the rim 
of a 10-cent piece before they spend It. It 
Is hard to stand wistful at the door of some 
glittering pleasure dome without the price 
of admission, when the gay crowd is enter- 
ing. To one who is down and out the num- 
ber of those who are up and in seems so 
large as to include almost everybody but 

himself. . * , 

Fifteen cents at the present market price 
of food provides a scant assortment if one 
must depend on the culinary science of the 
average cafe. 

There are those who may wonder how the 
world can be so wicked as to have a war 
when it has a Billy Sunday in It. 



The attendance at the noon-time 
ligious meetings conducted at the Lyceum 
theater by Dr. John W. Hoffman of the 
First Methodist church is large, and that's

the brief time allotted to them is to in- 
sert a period of peace and comfort into

Rippling Rhymes

Ode to Coalman. 

Oh, coalman, bring your coal, and 
pour it down the hole, and then send in 
your bill; for everything I earn must 
go for stuff to burn, to keep off win- 
ter's chill. We're running short of 
spuds, the kids are needing duds, "a 
hat," demands the frau ; but they must 
watch and wait till I quit buying slate, 
about two months from now. The bill 
for heating bars all extras like cigars, 
car rides and magazines ; I used to pur- 
chase meat, but now I have tojcat the 
cheaper kinds of beans. I shive? in the 
storm ; to keep the shanty warm^ I wear 
a summer suh ; my uncle has ray coat, 
the coalman has my goat, and I'm a 
sad galoot. A hundred things I need, 
I want some books to read, i brand 
new graphophone ; but all must go for 
coal — the coalman gets my roll, down 
to the final bone. Oh, coalman, send 
your teams, while yet the blizzard 
screams, unload your "lump" and 
"egg" ; and on collection day pursue 
me for the pay. and pully my weary

The Outlook: Mr. ' Brandeis' quasi-Social- 
istic sympathies furnish a reason for his 
confirmation. The rights of property are ex- 
ceedingly well represented in all our courts. 
Naturally the people seek able lawyers for 
the bench. Naturally great corporations 
employ able lawyers as their counselors. 
Naturally, therefore, the courts are re- 
cruited from those members of the bar 
whose training has led them to sympathize 
with the men of large property. It is desir- 
able that there should be brought into our 
courts a larger proportion of men who are 
familiar with the conditions of wage earn- 
ers, who sympathize with them, and who 
caii represent their interests and their 
point of view in judicial decisions. Mr. 
Brandels' ability to do this vAll n< t be 
questioned by anyone who is familiar with 
his past history 

Nor does it appear to us that the mere 
fact that he has had no Judicial experience 
upon the bench should militate against his 

Justice Hughes was never on the bench 
until his appointment as associate judge of 
the supreme court; and John Marshall, who 
was probably the ablest judge, all things 
considered, that this country has ever 
known, had never occupied a place as judge 
In any court until he was appointed chief 
justice of the supreme court of the United 

Saeredaess of Bridge PrtaeM. 

The New Republic: Newspaper readers 
learned the other day that the wife of Judge 
Gary had offered Steel shares as prizes for 
a bridge party. That was a mistake on Mrs. 
Gary's part; at least it was a mistake to let 
it be known. The Incident makes it more 
difficult for people to respect private prop- 
erty as a sacred institution; more difficult 
to assert with a straight face that property 
is responsibility, that wealth is always 
earned, and that riches go naturally to the 
most enterprising and hard-working mem- 
bers of the community. Editors and econom- 
ists are having a hard enough time to prove 
that the present distribution of property is 
the best that can be devised, and when prop- 
erty Is treated so frivolously their task be- 
comes almost unbearable. Does Mrs. Gary 
realize that a share of Steel stock represents 
the effort of human lives, that it represents 
control over those lives, that It is a title not 
only to dividends but to power, and that such 
power cannot be entrusted long to those 
who forget these truths? She would prob- 
ably not gamble with her husband's right to 
vote, but his vote as a citizen is a small 
thing compared to his vote as an Important 
stockholder in t he Steel corporatio n. 

WoMea aad tiM Arta. 

W. L. Georjr* In the Atlantic: I believe 
that woman loves the arts better than does 
man. She is better ground for the develop- 
ment of a great artist, for she approaches 
art with sympathy, while the great bulk of 
men approach It with fear and dislike. 
shrinking from the idea that it may disturb 
their self-complacency. The prejudice goes 
so far that, while women are attracted to 
artists a« lovers, men are generally afraid of 
women who practice the arts, or they dUllke 
them. It la not a attention of sex; It U a 
qoettlon of art. 

Does Anybody Think Otherwise? 

Spooner Northern News: The expected has 
happened. Lindberg has withdrawn from

against a doughnut hole that the cold chills 
are chasing themselves up and down the

gressional game once again. Rather think 

he will. boys. 


Are We Really a 

Nation of Humorists? 

James L. Ford in McClure's Magazine: The 
belief has been created that we are a na- 
tion of humorists, and it is a fact worthy of 
remark that the duller the mind into which 
this delusion creeps the more ardently it is 

In one sense of the word we are a nation 
of humorists. Indeed. It would be hard to 
find a man who does not regard himself as 
an Inspired funmaker. We certainly have 
more humorists to the square mile than can 
be found in any other land; nowhere Is It 
said with more persistency and sincerity: "If 
It were not for my saving sense of humor, 1 
really don't know what I should do!" 

Imagine an Irish peasant coming to the 
door of his cabin to announce his possession 
of a "saving sense of humor!" 

With every man his own humorist and 
every humorist laboring with tongue or pen 
at his self-imposed task of being funny, our 
national humor has reached a point that 
may well make the Judicious grieve. Comic 
supplement humor has all the wholesome 
merriment of the goat and stovepipe school 
with the added charm of irreverence, mani- 
fested chiefly in the constant exploitation 
of the impertinence of the unlicked Amer- 
ican cub. No household that plumes Itself 
on Its "saving sense of humor" should be 
without one of these refining and Instructive 
sheets. The picture of a cheeky brat hitting 
his grandmother In the eye with a ripe to- 
mato Is not only mirth-lnsplrlng to the adult 
mind, but helpfully suggestive to adolescence 

as well. 

We have also, and In a high state of de- 
velopment, the hee-haw school of rib-poking 
jocosity, that, anaconda-like, covers every- 
thing with Its own slime and then pro- 
nounces It funny. According to the canons 
of jocosity It Is funny to be fat and funny 
to be thin; funny to be married and funny 
to remain bachelor or maid. Baldness is 
regarded as a fit subject for uncontrolled 
mirth. Courtship awakens the sly grins of 
all beholders. The wedding morn is the sig- 
nal for unloosing the dogs of robust fun. 

Does this universal merriment Justify our 
claim that we are a nation of humorists? 

There is on"e sure way of giving fresh- 
ness and Importance to the most common- 
place maxims — that of reflecting on them in 
direct reference to our own state and con- 
duct, to our own past and future being. — 

By reflection you may draw from th« 
fleeting fact.s of your worldly trades, art, or 
profession, a science permanent as 3'our im- 
mortal .soul— and make even these subsidiary 
and preparative to thp reception of spiritual 
truth, doing as the dyers do, who, having 
first dipped their silks in colors of less 
value, then give them the last tincture of 
crimson In grain. — S. T. Coleridge. 

Of so exalted a nature is this enjoyment, 
tTiat theologlsts have not heslt.nted to assert 
that to recollect a well-spent life is to an—* 
tlcipate the blis>s of a future existence. — I>r.

How Do You Tackle Your IVorkt 

How do you tackle your work each day? 

Are you scared of the Job you find? 
Do you grapple the task that comes your 

With a confident, e^sy mind? 
Do you stand right up to the work ahead 

Or fearfully pause to view It 
Do you start to toll with a sense of dread 

Or feel that you're going to do It. 

You can do as much as you think you can. 

But you'll never accomplish more; 
If you're afraid of yourself, young man. 

There's little for you In store. 
For failure comes from the Inside first. 

It's there If w'e only knew It. 
And you can win, though you face the worst. 

If you feel that you're going to do it. 

Success! It's found in the soul of you. 

And not in the realm of luck! 
The world will furnish the work to do. 

But you must provide the pluck. 
You can do whatever you think you can, 

If s all In the way you view it; 
Ifs all in. the start that you make, young 

You must feel that you're going to do It. 

How do you tackle your work each day? 

With confidence clear, or dread? 
What to yourself do you stop and say 

When a new task lies ahead? 
What Is the thought that Is in your mind? 

Is fear ever running through It?

By thinking you're going to do It.

To the Elitor of The Herald: 

The usage of the word "American" 
In applicHtion to all naturalized citi- 
zens.' a8 ijdvocated in a recent talk by 
D. D. Mrrray, Is worthy of careful 
thought li its bearing upon vital rela- 
tions of iiur national life. 

To the citizen not bom In America, 
it sugges' s complete relinquishment of 
his former political affiliations, not 
only, but names hi>n every day as one 
of and part of, the great people whose 
government he has made his own. The 
value of he suggestion dally given In 
his work. In his recreation. In his so- 
cial life, and In his home Is funda- 
mental * nd comprehen.^lve. To the 
naturaliz<<l person. It is a constant 
reminder of his kingship as a citizen. 
To the n itii-n it will moan a reward 
of servit e given spontaneously by 
those wh >. having become Americans 
and beinK called Americans, will rise 
to the fill measure of the responsi- 
bility Involved in being an American. 
The benefits .resulting from such a 
usage ar(> both subjective, in that they 
will give inspiration to the Individual 
person w »o has become a citizen, and 
national or social, in the increased 
patriotism and social service that will 
accrue to the nation. 

Truly <lo I believe that the name 
American applied to the naturalized 
citizen, a I well as to the native born, 
will havr an influence so subtle and 
far reaching as to change greatly the 
attitude )f all newcomers who have 
chosen Ihl.s our republic for their 
country i nd home. 

Every naturalized citizen can say 
firmly, p tsitively. and, I trust, rev- 
erently, 'I am an American." He can 
do this with just regard and respectful 
memory lor the land of his birth, but

Council WiU Give Support 

to the Penrose-Griffin 


Provides Aid for Superan- 
nuated Employes in 
Mail Service. 

City commissioners yesterday after- 
noon Indorsed the Penrose-Griffin bill, 
which provides for the retirement of 
auperannuated civil service employes 
in the railway mail service, the rural 
and city free delivery service and 
postofflce clerks. 

The resolution indorsing the bill and 
instructing tho clerk to mail copies 
to Congressman Miller, Atlee Pome- 
rene. chairman of the United States 
civil service, the United States senate 
and the daily papers was Introduced 
by Mayor Prince and seconded by 
every member of the council, so eager 
were the commissioners to support the 

The Penrose-Grif/ln bill will come 
before the present congress, according 
to reports from Washington, and lo- 
cal postofflce employes are making 
every effort to aid in securing national 
support for the measure. 

Wkat BUl ProvldeN. 

From information given . Mayor 
Prince, he prepared the following 
statement yesterday afternoon for the 
benefit of the other commissioners: 

"The Penrose-Griffin bill provides 
for an Indefinite leave of absence with 
an allowance of $600 per annum, pay- 
able monthly, to all persons employed 
In the railway mail service, the rural 
free delivery service, the city free de- 
livery service and postofflce clerks and 
other employes In postoffices who are 
In the classified civil service, and who 
have become Incapacitated from per- 
forming their duties through superan- 

"It also provides that should it be 
found necessary to employ a substitute 
to fill the place of an employe who 
has been granted a;i indefinite leave of 
absence, the substitute shall be paid at 
the rate allowed for vacation work. 
The passage of this bill would mean 
that the hardships of the 160-day or- 
der, the redu'-tion in salaries of letter 
carriers assigned to collection duty 
and the speed tests would be an invit- 
ing hand to young and old alike. It 
would encourage young men to enter 
the service and be-' ready and willing 
to give the nmst productive and fruit- 
ful years of their lives to the govern- 
ment, secure in the knowledge that 
when their step became halting and 
their eyes dimmed they would not be 
led out and left to the mercies of a 
careless world. To the old men U 
would mean a haven of quiet and con- 
tent, which should be theirs by reason 
of their long and faithful service. 

"The adoption of this plan would not 
add very materially to the cost of the 
postal service, as will be readily noted 
by analyzing existing conditions. A 
large numb?r of ejnployes who are eli- 
gible for retirement under this bill 
receive $1,200 a year. By retiring them 
on an annuity of $600 and filling the 
vacancies wherever necessary with 
younger men on vacation pay, the al- 
lowances granted the superannuated 
men and the salaries of the new ap- 
pointees combined would not far ex- 
ceed the compensation of the retired 
employes, while the efficiency of the 
service would be materially Improved 
by tho addition of young men." 


Bills Calling for Large Sum 

Presented By Asquith 

Are Passed. 

London. Feb. 22— The house of com- 
mons last night passed new votes of 
credit to the amount of £420,000,000. 
This Is expected to carry the war to 
the end of May. bringing the total sum 
appropriated by means of votes of 
credit since the outbreak of the war to 
£2,082,000,000. a sum, according to 
Premier Asquith, "not only beyond pre- 
cedent, but actually beyond the Imagi- 
nation of any financier of this or any 
other country." 

Parliament was occupied entirely 
with financial questions. Premier As- 
quith spoke for fifty minutes in pre- 
senting the goverrtment's motion for 
the new war credits. The chancellor of 
the exchequer, Reginald McKenna, fol- 
lowed with a statement regarding 
American exchange, which he declared, 
is now as high «« the British govern- 
ment wishes it to be. 

The point emphasized by Premier 
Asquith, was not the enormous total 
necessary for the war. but the fact that 
by careful economy and safeguards, 
the government had succeeded In hold- 
ing down the expenditure well below 
£6,000,000 a day. which figures he 
thought unlikely to be exceeded at any

Will Continue to Fight. 

Similar discrimination exists In many 
other instances and the traffic com- 
mission has brought it up In the re- 
cently instituted lake-and-rail case. 
The commission will continue to bring 
It up until relief la obtained no matter 
how long that takes. 

In the Minnesota rate case, where 
the matter was originally brought up, 
it is shown that: 

The rate on Iron and steel articles 
in less 'than carload lots from Pitts- 
burgh to the Twin Cities, rall-lake- 
and-rail, is 31.76 cents; the carload 
rate from Pittsburgh to Duluth Is 22 
cents and the less than carload rate 
from Duluth to the Twin Cities la 20.7 
cents, making a total cost to a Du- 
luth jobber making delivery of such 
articles In the Twin Cities 42.7 cents, 
or 10.96 cents per 100 pounds more 
than the Pittsburgh jobber would have 
to pay to deliver the same class of 
soods at the Twin Cities in less than 
carload lots. 

The less carload rate on sheet and 
plate Iron from Youngstown Ohio, to 
the Twin Cities, through Duluth, is 
24.66 cents per 100 pounds. The less 
carload rate from Duluth to the Twin 
Cities on the same class of merchandise 
Is 20.7 cents per 100 pounds. Youngs- 
town is 1,051 miles from the Twin 
Cities while Duluth Is only 150 miles 
away, yet the Youngstown jobber pays 
only 3.83 cents more for 901 miles 
more transportation, delivering less 
carload lots of sheet and iron plate 
In the Twin Cities than Duluth must 
pay; but if the Duluth jobber buys In 
carloads and moves the property into 
his warehouse at Duluth, and reshlps 
a less than carload lot to the Twin 
Cities, he must pay a total of 37. 76 
cents per 100 pounds or 3.26 cents more 
than a Youngstown man must pay for

Chief Would Bar Them 

From Michigan Street 


In a communication received by 
Commissioner Silberstein yesterday. 
Police Chief McKercher requests the 
former to obtain the sentiment of the 
city council on the plan to transfer all 
saloons from the block on Michigan 
street, between Fourth and Fifth ave- 
nues west. 

He states in his communication that 
svich a plan would be advk^able as 
the block In question Is not a proper 
place for saloons. The street, he states, 
la not very well lighted and extremely 
close to the railroad yards, where a 
drunken man can be robbed. Many 
hold-ups and thefts In the vicinity 
have convinced him that a transfer 
of the saloons from the block will 
help the police considerably in pro- 
tecting that district. 

"1 wish you would lay the -natter 
before the council," writes the chief, 
"to ascertain whether or not It is 
deemed advisable to baf saloons from 
the block, and, if necessary, to grant 
transfers to other locations?." 

tioing Before Counell. 

Commissioner Silberstein said yes- 
terday afternoon that he would place 
the matter before the commissioners, 
and If the suggestion was favored, 
would grant transfers to all the saloon 
keepers In the block. Alex Matel of 
415 West Michigan street has an ap 
plication on file for a removal of 
license and the safety head will 
deavor to secure the sentiment of 
commissioners before^ acting 

There are several saloon

St. Paul, Minn.. Feb. 22.— (Special to 
The Herald.) — Copies of a bill, drafted 
by the executive committee of the Na- 
tional Guard a.'ssoclation, federalizing 
and reorganizing the National Guard 
of the several states, was received to- 
day by Adjt.-Gen. Fred B. Wood of the 
Minnesota National Guard. A feature 
of the bill is the provision for pay- 
ment for militia service. 

Under Its provisions the state militia 

is divided into three classes — the Na- 

i tional Guard, Junior Guard and the 

; unorganized. The military age is from 

; 12 to 64 years. 

The membership of the National 
Guard is Increased so that the maxi- 
' mum is 600 men for each congressman. 
! Payment is provided for attendance at 
drill on the basis of one-fourth of that 
paid a regular army man. This would 
mean |60 a year for each guardsman. 
The Junior Guard Includes boys and 
young men of from 12 to 18 years of 
age. These are divided into two 
classes, boys from 12 to 16 and boys 
from 15 to 18. The former are to re- 
ceive athletic training and the latter 
are to be equipped with arms. 

The unorganized militia are those 
not connected with the Guard, but who 
are subject to call. Those who join 
the Guard must sign an agreement to 
go outside the country if required. 

Adjt.-Gen. Wood says the bill has 
the approval of the National Guard 
and that the state militia will get be- 
hind it without delay. If not adopted 
by congress he predicts that many of 
its provisions will be Incorporated in 
a bill that will meet the approval of 
that body.

government whU^' '\fV'ashington foun- 
ded and which bje, -asserted, has been

Senator Lodge , that when the

on government tiy the people were 
quoted, "we were told that Lincoln 
lived fifty years ago and Washington 
In a period of great antiquity and al- 
though they were undoubtedly re- 
markable men in their day they could 
hardly be compared with the master 
minds engaged in undoing their work 
and moreover that everything has al- 
tered since they flourished. 

"I have said frequently and I will 
venture to say again that while I am 
far from thinking that all the wisdom 
died with our forefathers I am per- 
fectly certain that all the wisdom was 
not born yesterday." 

"Every thinking man." he continued, 
"of any age. is disposed if not eager 
to welcome new ideas, but the con- 
dition of his doing so is that the idea 

I shall be really new as well as bene- 
ficial." ' 

I He issued a warning to the "peace 
at any price" advocates and In con- 
clusion said: 

"The men of Washington's day who 
were for peace at any price frankly, 
because they were afraid and cared 
more for money than aught else are 
forgotten, but the name of Washing- 
ton is enshrined and reverenced 19y 
all nations. Let us not depart from 
his teachings or from his high con- 
ception of a man's duty. Let us ap- 
ply that conception now and put It 
into action without fear or favor."

Several of the charter commission 
Tiembers criticized the city commis-

operate in managing the city affairs, 
resulting in the present existence of 
five separate departments, they said, 
instead of one main government. By 
re establishing these old boards, which 
were in power before commission gov-

Reorganization of all Industrial and 
vocational courses in the public school 
curriculum, with a view of emphasizing 
their importance, was predicted today 
by members of the board of educa- 
tion committee on schools, when they 
approved a year's contract with Prof. 
William Noyes as director of manual 
training and domestic science. 

"One of the best moves this commit- 
tee ever has made for the advancement 
of Duluth schools," was the way one 
member of the school committee of the 
board of education characterized their 
unanimus approval of Prof. Noyes at 
the emergency meeting. 

Prof. Noyes, 

pllances have to be used to learn their 
functions; devices have to be worked 
to understand their principles. This 
is true to a large extent, even of the 
most abstract-minded children, and en- 
tirely true of most children. 

"It follows, then, that their educa- 
tion can proceed normally only when 
they are given full opportunity for 
concrete experiences. In the past, this 
has been the chief form and method 
of education. Children learn by imi- 
tating In play and in assisting in the 
activities of their elders. Tliese vital 
and educative experiences were supple- 
mented by some formal instruction 
which had its effect in proportion to 
the nearness and clearness of its rela- 
tion to real experience. 

School*!* Signal Success. 

"This formal Instruction has been 
largely taken over by the school, and. 
the school has become a more and 
more Important institution for the giv- 
ing of instruction and for the impart- 
ing of information. Both in methods 
and In content of subject matter the 
school has vastly improved, until to- 
day it is the most important? single in- 
stitution in any community. In the 
one matter of abolishing illiteracy, it 
has achieved signal success. 

"But with the change of Industrial 
and social conditions, there has been 
no corresponding enlargement of op- 
portunities for concrete experiences on 
the part of the child. On the contiar.v,

that Carl Miller, a fireman of Kansas 
City, was the only person hurt. He 
sustained a dislocated shoulder In 

George Jones, the engineer, remained 
In the cab and was uninjured. 

The derailment was caused by 
spreading rails. The smoking cat. 
which also was derailed, turned partly 
over and the passengers In it broke 
the windows to escape. The train was 
running 40 miles an hour when the 
accident occurred.

J! \a' t .iir Joe Stechers, he could

the lenwrili and breadth of the country 
to work l«>e in contests.

as if we make another trip to the

There is no doubt about it, the sen- 
sational work of this "boy in the

wrestling game and started the cen-

ot the country where it has been in 
a moribund condition for years.

Introduces Resolution Call- 
ing for Special Election 
on Armory Sale. 

Other Members of Council 

Would Await Action of 

District Court. 


commissioner Merritt. head of the 
utility division. Introduced a resolu- 
tion at tlie council meetlngr yesterday 
afternoon calling a special electioa on 
tlio armory referendum "In order to 
forestall the courts." 

After a lengthy discussion, in which 
ho waa opposed by Mayor Prince and 
the other three commiaslonersK the 
utility hf'ftd withdrew his motion, and 
the resolution was -laid over until the 
next meeting. 

The resofution pro-vides for a special 
election on Mai..h 28, when the ordi- 
nance, which Commissioner Merritt in- 
troduced yesterday afternoon repeal- 
ing the original measure on the 
iirmory sale, will be submitted to a 
I>ublic vote. 

Its first reading and will come up for 
a vote of th* commissioners after two 
more readings. Its title follows: "An 
ordinance re )eallng an ordinance en- 
tltiled 'an or linance to dispose of cer- 
tain real property belonging to the 
city of Duluh, "passed Jan. 8 and ap- 
proved Jan >.' " 

■ When told that It would be unwise 
to call an el- ctiori. in view of the fact 
that District Judge Dancer is expetced 
to render a tJeclsion shortly on the ar- 
guments in < onnection with the refer- 
endum pettiion. Commissioner Merritt 
d*>clared tha : "this action will fore- 
stall the cou:ts. showing them that we 
are going atead. It will influence the 
court In-malang a decision." 

Leonard M :Hugh, first assistant city 
attorney. Was asked for an opinion 
and he declared that the council could 
nut call an election. In view of the 
fact that thf case Is now In the hands 
of the court The council would have 
to abide by the decision, regardless of 
the fact thiit an election has been 
called, or e\ en held, he said. 

"We cann* t forestall the courts." he 
said, "but n ust abide by Its decision. 
The court ci n go ahead and order the 
sale of the •mllding to the Shrlners, 
regardless of an election and even if 
the voters lecided to retain owner- 
ship of the armory. If the court rules 
that the original ordinance is now 
law, then the city must act accord - 

After a leigthy discussion. Commis-

Duluth now has a gospel mission 
which will house and feed 70.000 men 
annually, and which operates a 240- 
acre farm,' where "down-and-outers" 
regain their strength and get a 
start. • 

Unique in the United States as a 
mission. Duluth's institution started 
when Rev. F. E. Plumb conceived the 
Idea of giving a hungry man a bowl 
of soup fre«. The Idea has grown un- 
til many cities have a mission of this 
kind. Minneapolis has one. Rev. Mi'. 
Plumb himself resigned to start a sim- 
ilar "plant" in Chicago, where he now 
is feeding thousands.

Leary "I slept one night on the mis-

into the street. I had to go to a sa-

"I made up my mind then, that ir i 
ever had a chance. I would fix it so 
that the unfortunate who really wants ! 
to go straight would not have to warm 
himself in a saloon. *My farm." as I 
call it. Is the result." 

The Methodist Union, which recent- 
Ir took over the operation of the mis- 
sion, now has a large farm near Bur- 
nett, Minn., operated and cared for by 
converts sent there by Mr. Leary from 
the new mission rooms at 342-44 Lake 
avenue south. 

"Nine or ten men are there all the 
time." Mr. Leary said. "We have 
twelve head of cattle and a number of 
pigs. We have cut 200 single cords of 
boxwood and 125 cords of hard birch- 
wood this year, and have established 

I a wood yard near the mission on Lake 


I "Last summer we cut forty tons of 
: hay — by hand — and cleared about one 
, hundred acres. The rest is wooded. 
The farm is a great idea, for it gives 
I us a chance to take the more 'hopeless' 
cases away from temptation. 

"N<»body knows how hard it Is to 
break away from the llQuor, and clg- 
I arets, and profanity, until they've 
j been down and out, and have tried it," 
I said the superintendent, "and I've been 
I there. That's why I know what these 
I poor fellows are up against. 

"Of course once in a while a man 
goec back on us — no one is perfect — 
but the ones who don't more than re- 
pay us.' 

Rev. Mr. Plumb'.i original Idea was 
to obtain vegetables and meat from 
wholesale grocers and commission men, 
and make a substantial stew, which 
could be dished out to men who were 
hungry, or who had spent all their 
money for liquor. 

SuppWrted by Donatleiia. 

In that way, at a nominal cost, he 

has fed thousand.s, and his Idea still 

Is being followed. The mission's only 

support Is donation from the Methodist 

I organization, and from a few public- 

spirited citizens 

"We don't spend much, though," said 
the ex-chief of police of Cass Lake, 
"and we are trying to make it as near- 
ly self-supporting as possible." 

Business conditions have changed 
greatly during the<»lat year, according 
to Mr. Leary, an4 1 aa a result fewer 
men are out of woHc. ^"Thls makes our 
work lighter," MrAj^eary said.

W. H. Locker Comments on 

Conditions in Steel 

Trade in East. 



"All that is standing in the way of 
steel plant operation* !>einff on even a 
greater scale than at "present is the 
scarcity of labor," said W. H. Locker 
today on his return from Philadelphia, 
where he attended the annual meeting 
of the American Manganese Manufac- 
turing company. 

Manufacturers are even now expe- 
riencing difficulty in finding sufficient 
men and with the additional avenues 
of employment that will develop dur- 

ing the spring months it is feared th«t 
the trouble will grow more acute. 

The American Manganese Manufac- 
turing company is now employing 
more than 1,000 men at its furnaces 
and coal mines at Punbar, Pa., -and 
226 men are engaged at its Mille-Laca 
and Cuyuna-Duluth mines, on the 
Cuyuna range, whereas less than one- 
third that number were on the pay- 
rolls at this time last year, he said. 
Stockpiling is proceeding at both the 
company's Cuyuna range mines and. 
according to present plans, from 200,- 
000 to 225,000 tons of ore will be 
shipped from them during the coming 
season of navigation. 

The election of officers resulted in 
E. E. Marshall being re-elected presi- 
dent of the company, with W. H. Lock- 
er vice president and treasurer and 
Otto J. Wendlandt of Duluth as sec- 
retary. Reiner Hock of this city and i confessed 
Robert Ron of Milwaukee were the 
other Western directors elected. Ac- 
cording to the reports presented the 
company earned a fair profit during 
1916 and on the basis of pig iron con- 
tracts thus far entered Into a substan- 
tial credit balance is predicted for the 
present year. 

"The various iron and steel com- 
panies are showing big earnings now," 
said Mr. Locker. "Pig iron is selling 
at from |19 to $20 a ton as compared 
with around $12.50 a year ago. Spiegel

FOX lea psInt o'tree. 

Wounded By Hunter and Pursued By 
Dog Lands There Dead. 

Grand Rapids, Wis., Feb. 22.— While 
the fox has a record around this neck 
of the woods for his sly tactics, one 
in the neighborhood of Bakervllle holds 
the record by taking to the trees when 
pursued by dogs and hunters. Conrad 
Wittman. Joseph and John Regele and 
Edward Patt, Bakerville hunters, were 
out fox hunting and Wittman shot a 
fox. The animal continued to run, 
however, and the dog followed the 
trail. Wittman soon caught up to the 
dog, who was sniffing about, having 
lost the trail. After an investigation 
the fox was discovered In a tree, not 
high above the ground, where it had 
jumped to escipe the dog. When 
found the animal was dead from the 
wound inflicted by Wittman.

Wisconsin's Protection of 

Animals Is Certainly 

Bearing Fruit. 

Ashland, Wis., Feb. 22.— (Special to 
The Herald.) — Conservation Warden 
Arthur Childs, who sent an expert 
here from Madison recently, as told 
in The Duluth Herald, to Investigate 
the complaints of farmers living in 
Northern Wlscon.eln near Lake Supe- 
rior, of the depredations of beaver is 
expected to announce his conclusions 
in a few days and decide what the 
state will do to curb the menace to 
tillers of the soil. 

There are numerous beaver colonies 
in Northern Wisconsin. In the low- 
land region north of Grand View for 
example, there are fully twenty col- 
onies of beaver. In one place, a live 
beaver dam with fresh cuttings can 
be seen from the Omaha railroad 
trains on their way from Ashland to 
Spooner. There are colonies near 
Saxon, Delta, and at least a dozen oth- 
er places throughout the northern 
woods. Ashland fishermen and hunters 
report a considerable increase in the 
number of colonies during the last six 
years, owing to the protection given 
by the state law and yet so easy are 
beaver trapped, they would be wiped 
out in a single season, were it not for 
the protection of the law and the 
vigilance of the wardens. 

Eaiiy to Capture Them. 
To catch a beaver, it is only neces- 
sary to tear a hole in the dam, set a 
trap in the breach, and without fail, a 
beaver will be found in the trap on 
the following morning. It is not nec- 
essary to find the runways or to bait 
the traps, as is the case with other 
animals. The dam may be disturbed 
or broken into at any place, with the 
certainty that the beaver will attempt 
to repair the breach, during the fol- 
lowing night. Although observers 
have tried for days at a time to catch 
a glimpse of beavers at work, it Is al- 
ways possible to see them on moon- 
light nights, it only being necessary 
to tear a small hole in their dams to 
put them to work. South of the Lake 
Superior country, beaver can hardly be 
said to exist, and how long they will 
remain up here, depends upon the pro-

Bladder Weakness or 


Kidney and Bladder weakness re- 
sults from uric acid, says a noted 1 
authority. The kidneys filter this acid , 
from the blood and pass it on to the i 
bladder, where it often remains to ir- 
ritate and inflame, causing a burning, 
scalding sensation, or setting up an 
Irritation at the neck of the bladder, 
obliging you to seek relief two or 
three times during the night. The 
sufferer is in constant dread, the wa- 
ter pjisses sometimes with a scalding 
sensation and is very profuse: again 
there is difficulty In avoiding it. 

Bladder weakness, most folks call it, 
because they can't control urination. 
While it is extremely annoying and 
sometimes very painful, this Is really 
one of the most simple ailments to 
overcome. Get about four ounces of 
Jad Salts from your pharmacist and 
take a tablespoonful in a glass of wa- 
ter before breakfast, continue this for 
two or three days. This will neutralize 
the acids in the urine so it no longer 
is a source of irritation to the bladder 
and urinary organs which then act 
normally again. 

Jad Salts is Inexpensive, harmless, 
and Is made from the acid of grapes 
and lemon juice, combined with lithia, \ 
and Is used by thousands of folks who i 
are subject to urinary disorders caused 
by uric acid irritation. Jad Salts Is 
splendid for kidneys and causes no 
bad effects whatever.

In addition to the campaign which

The petition which will be presented

of the statements. The payment of the 
railroad taxes by the Soo Line before 
the time required by law, he said, was 
a mistake on the part of the railroad 
officials, who did not seem to know- 
that the last legislature had prescribed 
a new time of payment.

kosh was sentenced to twelve years In 
the state prison after pleading guilty 
i to forging checks. Gruenvinger was , 
I on parole at the time he committed the ■ 
I forgery and it was for this reason that i

will spend the next fifteen days In Jail, \ 
he having pleaded guilty to the charge ,

nent horticulturist and resident of 
Sturgeon Bav, died at Pittsburgh, Pa.. 
Feb 19 aged 70. He came to Door 
county in 1890, when he planted the

eral days. She was born in Rochester, 
N y., Nov. 3, 1833. and married Paul

Mahnomen— A. J. Rogalskl's saw 
mill; near Twin Lake, burned Tuesday 
evening. The fire was discovered at

so rapidly that the mill and all of its 
contents were burned before anything 
could be taken out. The value of the 
mill and machinery is estimated at 
$2,000. The actual loss is much more 
as it will be impossible to fill some 
orders and it will take some time to 
get a new mill in shape for business.

If you have Catarrhal Deaf- 
ness or head noises go to your 
druggist and get 1 ounce of Par- 
mint tdouble strength), and add 
to it U pint of hot water and 4 
ounces of granulated sugar. 
Take 1 tablespoonful four times 
a day. 

This will often bring quick re- 
lief from the distressing head 
noises. Clogged nostrils should 
open, breathing become easy 
and the mucus stop dropping 
into the throat. It is easy to 
prepare, costs little and Is pleas- 
ant to take. Any one who has

freight lake line by W. J. Conners of 
Buffalo, X. Y.. reveals a plan of pack- 
age freight carrying that- wipes out 
Duluth's Chicago competition as a dis- 
trlhuting point for the Northwest, and 
leaves the Twin Cities in a position 
wliere they will have no optiun, from a 
»elll9h point of view, but to use Duluth 
Its Iheir gateway for business east or 
iwest bound. The plan furnishes a com- 
plete vindication of Duluth's position. 

Mr. Conners, in a conference with 
Julius H. Barnes of Duluth. In New 
i'ork recentl.v, made the Hat -statement 
that his company would oj^^iate Its 
boat line t>nly on a money making 
h&s'lB and that if the Lake Michigan 
lines cannot compete with the Lake 
Superior lines, so mtich the worse for 
the former. He declared that he is free 
from influence of any kind and that his 
company must pay; that being the only 
influence that will be permitted to 
isway It.

Washington. Feb. 23. — Formal rep- 
resentations were made to the state 
d^partmer.t today by the German em- 
bassy against the proceedings brought 
In ilie Federal courts at Norfolk to re- 
turn the captured British liner Appam 
to her owners. 

In a note presented by Count von 
Bernstoi/f. the Geiman anibassador. It 
!s contended that many precedents, as 
well as the terms of the Prussian- 
American treaty, provide that no legal 
action can lie against the Appam. held 
by a German crew as a prize of war 
nor against Lieut. Berg, her comman- 
der. It also Is contended that inas- 
much as Lieut. Berg has extra-terri- 
torial rights no legal action can He 
ugainst him. 

The note suggests tl>at when the 
case comes up in court March 2,

ThoroLigh Investigation to 

Be Made of Eaton 


Washington, Feb. 23 — New charges, 
alleging t^mployment of Louis D. Bran- 
deis by E. H. Harriman to obtain 
proxies in the celebrated fight for con- 
trol of the Illinois Central railroad and 
Mr. Brandelb' relations to the Equit- 
able Life Assurance society were filed 
t<»day with the senate sub-committee 
ci.nsldcrlng Mr. Brandeis' nomination 
for the siipreme court. 

AuPten G. Fox, a N'ew York attorney, 
in charge of presenting evidence for 
those «'Pposed to the confirmation of 
Brand* Is, laid the hew charges before 
the committee and summarized what 
he exported to prove by witnesses. 

In 1&07, he said, when E. H. Harri- 
man was fighting Stuyvesant Fish for 
control of the LllTnois Central. Sullivan 
and Cromwell, Harriman's attorneys, 
sent Wadill Catchlngs to Boston to 
employ Brandeis, Dunbar and Nutter 
to secure proxies from Illinois Central 
stockholders In New England to be 
voted against Fish. 

"Thereafter," said Fox, "Mr Bran- 
dels' firm acted for Mr. Harriman and 
Mldelv sought to obtain proxies in his 
behalf. A number of letters soliciting 
proxies were sent out hy Brandeis, 
Dunbar and Nutter. 

"In 1908, Mr. Brandeis In answer to a 
charge made by Joseph B. Warner, be- 
fore the legislative committee on rail- 
roads of Mas.sachusetts that Mr. Bran- 
deis had acted In behalf of Mr. Harii- 
man to Joseph Walker, chairman of the 
committee, denied that he had ever 
acted in that capacity."

Improvement on Grand 
Avenue Will Be Forty- 
Two Feet. 

Grand avenue will be paved to a 
width of forty-two feet. 

This announcement was made today 
by Commissioner Farrell. head of the 
works division, who said that his 
promise to the property owners would 
be carried out. and the original width 
of forty-six feet, as called for in tha 
Improvement petition, would be cut 
down to forty-two feet, from curb to 
curb. The city attorney, he said, has 
ruled that the width of a pavement 
as called for in a petition may be re- 
duced, but not increased. 

By paving Grand avenue to a width 
of forty-two feet the property owners 
will be saved the additional expense 
of the four feet and the expense of 
moving all the water, light and stwer 
connections, which are next to th» 
present curbs. 

When the contract for paving the 
thoroughfare is awarded. Commission- 
er Farrell said, provision will be made 
for a 42-foot pavement.

Suburban Trolley Extension 

Needed, Declares Bishop 


Extension of street car lines to the 
•uburban districts •will bring setll'^rs 
to this territory and aid the gardeners 
in bringing their products to the Du- 
lulh market more than any other fac- 
tor, according to Bishop McGolrlok. 

"It l.s one thing to discuss agricul- 
tural development within St. Louis 
county and another thing to make 
good with the settler when he comes 
nere, locates, invests and develops a 
email farm. Certain Interests must 
get together and work those things 
out as a unit — then the movement will 
have potency and bring proper re- 
teult?;." said Bishop McOolrlck In dl»- 
cuti.sing the situation. 

"We want to see Duluth able to feed 
herstlf ad far as possible within her 
own farming district. This is good 
business. To do this we must have 
more farmers, the Intelligent, rugged 
kind of m<^n who will turn the country 
Into a blooming, fruitful garden. But 
what are we doing to obtain these 
men? Our forces are scattered."

Structure Proves Too Small 

for Fast Growing 


At the recent business meeting held ; 
by the English Seventh Day Adventist i 
congregation. It wag definitely decided ' 
to make extensive enlargement to the | 
church located on the corner of Tenth i 
avenue east and Sixth street. i 

It Is reported that the membership 
Is continually growing, and they are 1 
much hampered for room for even , 
their own members when all are pres- l 
cnt. At the service last Sunday evening It 
was almost impossible to accommodate 
those who crowded the building. Pastor 
Stemple White. Andrew Thompson and 
Herman Cadleiix were elected as a 
building and finance committee, and 
work win begin on the church as soon 
as the weather will permit. 



Russian Prisoner in Aus- 
trian Camp Shows Ex- 
ceptional Grit. 

(Condpendence cf the Aitoelated Prew.) 
lAnz. Austria. Jan. 12.— MaJ.-Gen. 
Clemens Nottes, commander of the 
Klcln-Muenchen camp for Russian 
military prisoners, looked over the 
motley array of mei» In Russian uni- 
forms and Austrian suits of a semi- 
mllltary cut, who had lined up along 
the wall of the detention barracks, 
which In the camp named houses Rus- 
sian prisoners who have made at- 
tempts to escape or yrho have violated 
camp rules. 

"Most of these men." said the com- 
mander to the Associated Press corre- 
spondent, "have been guilty of bleach- 
es of discipline. There are a few, how- 
ever, who have mad«i attempts to get 
away. One of tTiem has tried it twice." 
With that. Gen. Nettestold one of 
his officera to bring nxtx a certain 

man. The prisoner, a rather handsome 
young fellow of about 25, stepped be- 
fore the commander, halted with a 
sharp thud of his heels, and then 
raised his hand to his cap, at atten- 

"They brought you back," commented 
the grizzled general. 

The Russian said "Da," with the 
faintest smile on his face. 

Gen. Nottes, too, smiled. 

"No doubt, you found It cold out 
In the mountains," he said. "For the 
next sixty days you can think it over 
In here, and then you may be of a 
different turn of mind. Russia Is a 
long way off from here at present, and 
I wish to warn you that the next 
time you get away from the camp In 
your Russian uniform, you may not 
fare so wtll. They may see you 
somewhere, recognize you and do you 
harm. Our peasants don't like Rus- 
sians any too well Just now." 

The fact that the Russian soldier 
was what may best be translated as 
offi'-, ■r-aspir.Tnt, before he fell into 
the hands of the Austrlans, gave him 
the right to reply to the comment of 
the camp commander. 

He said fcometblng in Russian. 

"Very well," said Gen. Nottes. 
"Please yourself! You say It Is your 
right and duty to escape. If you can. 
That I grant you. At the same time It 
Is my duty to keep you here. I will 
see to it that you are kept here." 

As h€ walked on, Gen. Nottes patted 
the Russian on the cheek. 

"Don't be foolish," he said. "It's 
cold out there." The Russian smiled 
ajid faced about. 

•'Plucky chap," remarked Gen. Not- 
tes. "and a good Russian. Knows 
German well, but never used it with 
the officers. The last time he m?.n- 
aged to get as far as the vicinity of 
Trfest. He hoped to get across to the 
Italians. In his Russian uniform at 
that. Speaking of grit, his is an ex- 
ceptional case. On his way to Triest 
he traveled at night, hid during cho 
day, and must have helped himself to 
food In a manner as yet unexplained." 

Gen. Nottes has been spending many 
months at the Russian front in Ga- 
llda, and like so many others of his 
countrypK-n, Is a thoroughly good 
sport. The daring of the man im- 
pressed him very much. 

I ,v 

the time it was said that the unusual ; 
wedding was a romance, but Dr. Gor- j 
ton discussed the union .scientifically 
with his wife before marriage, and 
they decided that It should be a prac- 
tical test of his eugenic theories. On 
April 25, 1912, about a year after they 
were married, twins were born to 
them. These are David A. Gorton, Jr., 
and Eleanor Gorton, both of whom 
are said to be exceptional children.

Washington, Feb. 23. — David R. 
Francis, secretary of the Interior in 
Cleveland's cabinet, and former gover- 
nor of Missouri, told President Wilson 
yesterday he would accept the post of 
ambassador to Russia to succeed 
George T. Marye, who has resigned. 

His nomination will be sent to the 
senate as soon as Inquiry can be made 
of the Russian government as to 
whether he is acceptable.

Mud Is Serious Problem on 

the Franco-Belgian 


Two Armies Are Like Two 

Wrestlers Gathering 

Their Forces. 

(CorresiMn4«nee »t the Attoeiated Prts*.) 
Paris, Feb. 7. — The second winter 
campaign along the Franco-Belgian 
front has thus far differed little from 
the ftrst, excepting in the greater effi- 
ciency that experience has givea to 
tactics between the trenches. The 
two armies at close quarters are, as 
last year, like two wrestlers gathering 
their forces, each seeking a solid foot- 
hold and on the lookout for the chance 
to grip the other by the neck. Most of 

tren«b.->0 -tA lMMkA£<l4 aw^y: the shot 
afterwards beHBPHPi fusillade ' and 
often brings t^e fTTst and sometimes 
the second line into a night attack. 

"Our soldiers have developed the in- 
stincts of a trapper." said an officer, 
"from living so long in close contact i 
with the enem|fcthey aie able by im- , 
, perceptible »lgTfi|» to detect the stroke 
I in preparation by the advei-Sary. or a ' 
I we»ki»«s3 tliat it \n n^cessarV to put 
to profit without delay. 

-s. SelMpt eff BrtKreiT, 
"The trenoli Is a daily school of 
bravery and heroic patience," added 
the officer, "wiih^o --recess, but a 
little vacation ev«*fy four days. 'See 
all that goes on but don'* be seen,' 
that is the ^t^^vord all along the 
line; It is unq*f^inably the same on 
the other rid^oF^e wire entaagle- 
ments, for every rise of ground that 
gives a vantage point of observation 
is bitterly contested." 

The slightest elevation occupied on 
one side obliges the adversary to bur- 
row deeper into the earth. At some 
points the adversaries have i enounced 
heights that have co.-*t too much and 
have dug in on the slopes; they push 
out little listening or observation posts 
armed with machine guns, for the'poa- 
session or destruction of which all im- 
aginable expedients- arc employed. At 
certain points the listening post is 
within two yards of the enemy's 
trench, and in some cases the two ad- 
versarieSi occupy the same trench, sep- 
arated only by a barricade of sacks of 
earth. The tension there is at the 
maximum In the incessant guard 
against a surprise. It is in such spots 
so many soldiers succumb or are blind- 
ed for life by the hand grenade, which. 
In hands become expert by a year's 
training, have become a more terrible 
engine of war than .ever before.

sappers and miners 
underground: In the trenches them- 
selves it is largely a matter of vigi- 
lance, mud and water, with a frequent 
variation in repairs of defense works 

after a heavy bombardment. The mud 
is a more serious problem than at the 
same season last year on account of 
heavy rains. Ditching has been done 
on a large scale all along the front, 
excepting in the dunes of Flanders 
where the trenches are mostly above 
ground — composed of millions of sacks 
of sand; the water there is too near 
the surface to make drainage possible. 
I^lsewhere drainage has been effective 
in dry weather but the rain toys with 
the genius of the engineer and turns 
the ditches into canals. 

MHd and Water. 
The men are well armed against the 
cold with sheep-skin coats, mufflers, 
sweater.*?, boots, and are quite com- 
fortable in the Vosges where the water 
runs off readily. In the plains of the 
Woevre, though, where an entire bri- 
gade worked four days to execute a 
plan of drainage admirably conceived 
and theoretically perfect that was 
found Insufficient during the 
storm, there is no protection possible 
against mud and water. 

The bottoms of trenches are covered 
with fagots, but in vain; they disap- 
pear in the mud after a storm. A week 
of rain causes as much damage as a 
violent bombardment, according to an 
officer who has seen nearly every sec- 
tor of the front this winter. 

In certain parts of the Woevre. Ar- 
tols and Flanders the ground all 
around the lines, belabored by shells 
of all calibers, covered with excava- 
tions that rain has transformed into 
miniature lakes, resembles a marsh of 
interminable length and a mile or so 
widf; the communicating trenches 
themselves, sometimes several miles 
long^, are like cesspools. The fnen 
obliged to tramp through them to get 
to the front line are tired out when 
they arrive. One relief detachment 
was a whole night making the four 
miles from their quarters to the 
trenches; during the passage a number 
of them left their shoes in the heavy, 
sticky mud. Men often prefer to risk 
the enemy's shells and make their way 
to their post on the surface, but even 
this route is scarcely better In many 
places on account of the pitfalls dug 
by artillery fire. It Is over siich 
ground that the soldiers must plod 
with backs bent under loads of mate- 
rials required to maintain the Inviola- 
bility of the first line; no other means 
of transportation is possible.

Attempts Are Being Made 

to Hide Identity Behind 



Only Witness Examined 

During Morning in 

Richeson Case. 

I>uUith automobile owners, who have 
the state licenses taken out in the name i 
of theii chauffeurs, are violating the 
atatutes and liable to arrest, according I 
to the police. ; 

By putting the license in the name of 
the chauffeur, the owner of the ma- j 
chine, in many instaiices. succeeds in | 
escaping the personal property and i 
wheelage taxes, as officials find it im- 1 
po6sii>le to trace the real ownership. I 
As automobiles must pay BO cents per 1 
horse power to the wheelage tax fund, 
owners who put the license In the 
chauffeur's name, hide their identity 

fnd e.'cape this tax, which ranges from 
10 to $26 a year. 
It is po;nted out by the authorities 
that it is very often impossible to lo- 
cate these chauffeurs from the ad- 
dresses furnished by the secretary of 
stale, who issues automobile licenses, 
While in many in.«tance9, the chauffeur 
inovt a away or is fired, bo that the 
nmiier escapee the assessor and wheel- 
age tax collector altogether. 

A thorough investigation Is being 
made of the delinquents and arrests 
may follow, if owners are found violat- 
ing the statute regulating the licensing 
of automobiles.

One broken lot of women's wool and cotton union suits (high

And These Marquisette and Voile 
Curtainings at 2 1 c . 

Because they're a quality we sell ordinarily at 30c! And they're

This Pattern in Syracuse China Will Go 
Straight to Her Heart! 

It's brand new; the "Empire"; as 
charming a pattern as has yet been 
originated in this domestic ware. 
(And like all of our china, it's here in 
open, stock; the full 100-piece set sur-* 
prisingly moderate in price, only $30, 
and any individual piece to be had 
separately.) Only yesterday we re- 
ceived notice from the Syracuse company of a rise in prices 
from 5% to 10% on all their ware — an inevitable result of the 
increased demand, due to the impossibility of securing china 
from abroad. 

The famous Royal Doulton ware (from one of the oldest pot- 
teries in existence) is soon to be entirely o^ the market. We're 
showing this popular ware at the old pricey, — another excep- 
tional opportunity for the woman who apf)reciates quaint 
china, (tea pots, sugars and creamers, tobacco -jars, etc.)

difference belwe.-n one food show and 
another is in the prizes awarded to tha 


prettiest baby, the best cake, the finest 
loaf of bread, or the best display of 
foods. Eut it Is a wonderful trip to a I 
land of good things that women like 
to take each season. No one wants 
to remember all the facts about all the 
foods, but the demonstrators and cook- 
ing teachers make one proud of their 
own cooking craft. But home again, 
women remember some trick of gar-

More interesting than cooking dem-

i States are pleased to send exhibits 
from their health departments to show 
how to test vinegar, syrup, baking 

; powders, eggs* and other articles of 
dally consumption for purity and good- 

t Such displays are educational, and 
I usually Include weights and measures 
1 that have been confiscated from fraud- 
ulent dealers, eggs. good, bad and In- 
different, and olive oils and extracts. 

Food shows Introduce foods that we 
are not much acquainted with and 
would not buy upon our own initiative. 
Many foolish prejudices against cx- 
. client foods are done away with here, 
and healthful properties of other ar- 
ticles are accented. 

One of the most Important things a 
well-conducted pure food show does is 
to make women more skeptical. After 
a weeks campaign for pure food, gro- 
cers hesitate to reach for something 
almost as good." for the thing that is i

Matinee Musicale Program

The Matinee Musicale program yes-

with good iffect and color by Mrs.

Franci^s Berc snd Miss Ethel Gonska 
at the secoa 1 piano. 

Mrs. Homer C. Anderson sang a

break," Nevln; "I Arise From Dreams 
of Thee," llenjamln Whelpley; "The 
Robin sings In the Apple Tree," Mc-

and Mrs. W. S. WIngate of Superior

The feature of the program was the 
Duluth orchestra quartet, which made 
its Initial bow before the musicale. 
The quartet Is composed of Adolph 
Loeb, first violin: Maurice Kaplan, 
second violin r I. N. Sodahl, viola, and 
Bernerd Slegert, violoncello. They 
played two Raff numbers. "Erklarung" 
and "Die Muhle." which called forth 
an encore, but It was In their read- 
ing of Tschalkowsky's well-known 
"Andante Cantablle." from string 
quartet Op. 11. that they showed ex- 
ceptionally good ensemble work, clear- 
ness of attack, good tone and artis- 
tic amalramatlon of color — a condition 
which Is not always present In so com- 
paratively young an organization. The 
quartet gives great promise of being a 
valuable addition to Duluth's musical 
circles and will be anticipated with 
pleasure upon their next appearance.

Five Germans in Orchestra; 

Canadian Tour Cancelled 

In view of criticisms published in 
Ottawa, Ont., newspapers concerning 
the proposed visit to that city of the 
New York Symphony orchestra, It was 
decided to cancel the orchestra's 
Canadian bookings. George Engels, 
manager of the orchestra explained 
the action as follows: 

"In view of the unrest created in 
Ottawa by the recent deplorable de- 
struction of the parliament buildings, 
and since articles in the papers in Ot- 
tawa have appeared protesting against 
the going to Canada of musicians of 
German birth, the Symphony society 
of New Ydrk prefers to postpone the 
concerts in Ottawa and Montreal. The 
Symphony society does not desire to 
give Its many Canadian friends cause 
of worry, nor does it wish to aggra- 
vate an unfortunate situation by tak- 
ing into the Dominion of Canada, at 
the present time, five German born 
musicians who are members of the 
orchestra, but who have not yet re- 
ceived their second American citizen- 
ship papers." 

The New York symphony will play 
In Duluth, March 28. under the aus- 
pices of the Matinee Musicale.

that women would have no chance to

"No man has any right to waste his 
powers of protest by fretting and fum- 
ing against the Imaginary or irreme- 
diable ills of life." — Robert Whittaker. 

If all the energy in the world that 
is wasted not only in "fretting and 
fuming against the imaginary or ir- 
remediable ills of life." but also in 
pointless, futile protest against the 
real evils, could be gathered together 
and focused where It would really ac- 
complish something, what a grand 
push toward the millennium this old 
world of ours wo^ild getl 

I have an acquaintance Who Is very 
much troubled by the mistake she 
thinks her neighbor Is making in per- 
mitting her daughter to go about with 
a man of questionable morals. 
She Rants and Shonts. 

I seldom see this woman that she 
does not bring up this subject and 
talk about It. She gets very much ex- 
cited and before she has finished she 
is talking at the top of her voice, es- 
pecially if I make bold to question any 
of her statements. 

Nor Is this the only subject on which 
she excites herself. There are several 
similar points of neighborhood conduct 
which are as a red rag to her feelings. 

Whenever I see her expending all 
this energy and tiring herself out (for 
whether you realize it or not, speaking 
in loud tones and getting excited does 
tire you and use up your energy), 1 
think how much good it might do if 
•he used that energy positively in try- 
ing to help community conditions In- 
stead of negatively in criticizing them. 
Jnat Svp»o«« She Used Th«t Bscrcr 

Suppose, for instance, she put it into 
doinc MUlement work, or into maklnci 

which both Mr. and Mrs. Johnson re- 
plied, expressing their hearty appra- 
elation and thanks for the generoiin 

things pleasant for some of the young 

feople In her neighborhood, or into 
hinklng of pleasant, encouraging 
things to say to her friends. 

The woman who nags is another 
type of protest waster. "People are 
always talking about women nagging 
as If they thought they did It because 
they liked it." says a friend of mine. 
"They seem to forget that the reason 
a woman keeps on nagging is because 
the man keeps on being late to meals 
or leaving bis things around or what- 
ever it Is she nags about." 
It's Foolish- to Nag Bven \V\t*n Yon 
Have Reason To. 

True enough. But the reason It is 
foolish for a woman to nag is not be- 
cause she doesn't, usually have cause 
enough, but because it is so futile. If 
she would store up the energy of these 
dally reproaches and peck It into one 
big, carefully thought-out protest, she 
might accomplish something. As it is, 
she is simply wasting her powers of 

Holding a conviction on any subject 
of public welfare and merely vaporing 
about it to others who think as you 
do. instead of trying to educate those 
who don't, or getting out and working 
for it in other ways. Is another form 
of futile protest. Haven't you noticed 
how often the people In favor of some 
reform will hold meetings at which the 
only people present are the people al- 
ready in favor? 

Hating people for their sins is an- 
other way of wasting our powers of 
protest. Hate, you know, uses up a 
great deal of energy. 

This Is the age of efficiency, and 
there is an efficiency of protest, as well 
as of busineos or housekeeping.

Alkali Makes Soap 

Bad For Washing Hair 

Most soaps and prepared shampoot 
contain too much alkali, which la 
very injurious, as it dries tho scalp 
and makes the hair brittle. 

The best thing to use is Just plala 
mulslfied cocoanut oil, for this is pura 
and entirely greaseless. It's very 
cheap, and beats the most expensive 
soaps or anything else all to piece*. 
You can get this at any drug storo, 
and a few ounces will last the whol« 
family for months. 

Simpl>- moisten the hair with wa- 
ter and rub It In, about a teaspoonful 
is all that Is required. It makes aa 
abundance of rich, creamy lath en 
cleanses thoroughly, and rinses oui 
easily. The hair dries quickly an^ 
evenly, and is soft, fresh looking ^' 
brig'ht, fluffy, wavy and easy to han- 
dle. Besides, It loosens and takes OttI 
every particle of dust, dirt and dai^ 
druff. — ^AdvertiatmsiU.

The muck talked about drama, "Life 
Without Soul," produced by the Ocean 
Film corporation of New York, will be 
shown at the Orph^um-r.lrand theater 
tomorrow, Friday, Saturday and Sun- 

This photoplay was adapted from 
the book "Frankenstein," written by 
Mrs. Mary W. Shelley, and ha» caused 
much comment from the photoplay 
public. ^.^. 

The production deals with the artifi- 
cial creation of a superman, who acts 
as the Nemesis of his creator. In addi- 
tion to the intenselj^ dramatic and hair- 
raising sensstional exploits, a love 
theme runs through the production that 
brings one back to youthful years. 

The book "Frankenstein" was writ- 
ten by Mary W. Shelley in a competl- 
in which the world-famous au- 
Lord Byron. Mrs. Shelley and 

husband, each agreed to writa a 

tale more een.satlonal than any that has 
been written by an author before that 
time. Both Mr. Shelley and Lord Byron 
confessed their Inability to meet the 
requirements of the contest, Mrs. Shel- 
ley being the only one who completed 
the tale, and she entitled her book 

The photoplay is beautifully tinted 
and toned, which adds to the attrac- 
tiveness of the production. 

This powerful dramatic picture will 
be presented with the proper musical 
setting. And as extra added feature 
the Glbbons-Ahearn championship fight 
pictures will be shown.

huv^ The moral sense of the American 
pe'»ple revolti-d at • the spectacle, but the 
Liuted States did not go to war. 

Why? Betiuse it was not obligated to 
go to war. 

Because i«' traditional policy and its 
common sens • urged it to keep out of war. 
and because there is not a word or a sylla- 
ble in The Higue convention binding it to 
go to war in Europe. 

Not only • id the American people not 
want to go t< war in F.urope, but it would 
have been idiotic folly to go to war there, 
and there was utterly no reason on earth 
why they shruld go. 

In the firsf place, the convention by its 
own terms is binding only if all the belli- 
gerents sign, d it. If there is one belli- 
gerent that did not sign it. then the others 
are released from their pledges. And Great 
Britain did n Dt sign it! 

But that aiswer to Roosevelt and Root, 
though it is sufficient, may be held techni- 
cal. Well, t! ere is another. This declara- 
tion was atttched to The Hague conven- 
tion by the s .'nate of the United States and 
now stands ;ts a part of it: 

Nothing contained in this conven- 
tion shall be so construed as to re- 
quire the '.'iiit^-d States to depart from 
Its traditional policy of not intruding 
upon. Interfering with, or entangling 
Itself In the political Questions of 
policy of tny foreign state; nor shall 
anything contained In the said con- 
vention bf construed to Imply a re- 
lin^ulshmrnt by tlte United States of 
tirt traditi )nal attitude toward purely 
American questions. 

Does Theodore Roosevelt, who is using 
this point to gain political advantage 
against the Wilson administration, know 
ab->ut these two factors? He does! 

Does Elihu Root, who is using this point 
to gain polit cal advantage against the Wil- 
son adminisi ration, know about theiii? He 


mean, then? Its simply 
outs" play it against the 
"ins" are strong and the 

serves consideration; but the consideration 
ought to take in all sides of it and find out 
all about it and not leap to conclusions re- 
garding it. 
At any rate it doesn't sound like anything

That «^ounds like the real thing. To have 
a man who talks like that coming to take 
a leading part in the development of the 
Duluth school system is the most encour-

Was this country bound ty The Hague

when Germany violated the pledge! neu-

Roosevelt says it was, and he is hugely

■rate in IQOJ when The Hague conference 
was held. 

If this country was bound by its word to 
go t > the rescue of Belgium, as Roosevelt 
and Root declare, then failure to intervene 
is a 1)etrayal of the nation's pledged word. 
and a shameful thing. This, too, no mat-

The expo .ition committee of the Duluth 
Commercial club has started the ball a- 
r-jlHi.g for a combined agricultural and in- 
dustrial exposition to be held next fall. 

Not only should there be such an event, 
but the start toward it is not being made a 
day too eai ly. 

The exp< sition was omitted last year, 
though it lad been held successfully in 
several pre ious years. It should not be 
omitted thi . year. Moreover, it should be 
bigger and better — especially on its agri- 
cultural side — than ever. 

The comniitee shoidd keep up its good 
work. The Duluth Rotary club and the 
Duluth Ret.iil Merchants' association, which 
have beeti iskcd to join hands, should do 
so with a will. And everybody else should 
get in behi id and push. 

One way nearly everybody can help is 
to plan an exhibit. If you have no factory 
or industry to make an exhibit for, you 
have a back yard and a garden — plan, plant, 
till, water, thin. trim, spray for an exhibit 
from that hack yard garden. Just for one 
instance, let somebody start right now to 
grow the linest bunch of sweet peas ever 
grown in Duluth: buy the best seeds; 
make a ric i trench two feet deep; sow the 
seeds thinly; thin the plants to six inches 
apart; feriilize with wood ashes; water 
thoroughly during the dry spells: trim the 
plants to one main stem; keep the flowers 
picked an- seeds from forming — in some 
such way .is this it is possible to grow an 
exh'ibit of sweet peas for the exposition that 
will be a enter of attraction. And that's 
just one way. 

It is not a day too early to begin plan- 
ning the (xposition. It is not a day too 
early to p an your part in it, whether it is 
pushing the work along or getting ready 
an exhibit for it. 

Do you f-ven know for certain what is the 
last day fir paying your personal property 


Whether viewed as a bid for the presi- 
dency, a keynote for the stern and unbend- 
ing standpatters or a mere expression of 
opinion by a veteran statesman now re- 
tired, l^st night's speech by EHhu Root to 
the regular Republicans of New York can- 
not fall to be received with surprise. 

There Is nothing new in a Republican of 
any faction asserting the Infallibility of 
that organization's high tariffs and Its om- 
nipotent power to compel prosperity. There 
Is nothing original In the plea that Demo- 
crats lack capacity for government. There 
is nothing strange in the sympathy expressed 
for Huerta, the Mexican dictator, who had 
many friends in the United States, some at- 
tached to him for business reasons and oth- 
ers because he. too, hated the president at 
Washington, who denounced him. 

What is novel and startling In Mr. Root's 
address Is Its Incitements to war with Ger- 
many. It Is true enough that he avows his 
devotion to peace, but the words that he 
ascribes to peace are few, while those that 
make for war are many. With reference to 
Belgium, and again In regard to the misuse of 
submarines, he has nothing but ridicule for 
our silence as to the one and the laborious 
processes of our diplomacy as to the other, 
and nothing to suggest In their place but ac- 
tion. Although inaction Is the crime of 
which he convicts the Wilson administration, 
every child In America knows that when a 
nation refuses to reason and decides to act, 
its only appeal Is to the sword. 

This is not the entire case of the states- 
man turned warrior. He avers that we have 
been neutral between right and wrong; that 
we have not "backed" our diplomacy; that 
our threats have not been "made good;" that 
we lost our Ideals and the support of the 
moral forces of the earth early In the war 
by doing nothing, and. most amazing of all, 
that we are unprepared for war because no- 
body would listen to Messrs. Gardner. Lodge, 
Stitnson and Roosevelt, who saw immediate- 
ly the desperate need of a great army and 
navy, and, he might have added, the occa- 
sion for using them. 

No two men in public life are more unlike 
than Mr. Root and Mr. Roosevelt. Yet here 
we have the Roosevelt doctrine in the lan- 
guage of Mr. Root. We miss, of course, the 
extravagance, the arroirance and bluster, to 
which the ex-president has educated his dis- 
ciples, but the contempt for negotiation, the 
Impatience with delay, the appeal to force, 
the glorification of action of any .kind so 
long as it Is hasty and forcible, are all to 
be found In the lawyer's smoother phrases. 
How are we to aoGount for Mr. Root's 
sudden conversion to a doctrine that ho 
never before accepted? Have both branches 
of the Republican party agr«ied to advocate 
war with Germany and the conquest of Mex- 
ico as the Issues upon which, with a candi- 
date ready to fight for any cause or no 
cause, they hope to win the support of the 
American people next November? If so, is 
Ellhu Root the man already chosen for 
leadership and is cohesion between the 
friends of Mr. Taft and the friends of Mr. 
Roosevelt pos.sibie on the all-Roosevelt and 
all-war terms that he advances? 


A Marble Statesman 


;lt would be a strange thing indeed if it 
were. From Washington down the United 
States has steadfastly kept clear of Euro- 
pe.-in entanglements. There is no policy of 
state more definitely understood or firmly 
fixed than this. It would be strange in- 
deed if, unknown to the people, this policy 
had been changed and this country pledged 
to such a participation in European quar- 
rels as Roosevelt and Root condemn it for 
not having taken. 

The Hague convention of 1907 contains 
these paragraphs: 

1. The territory of neutral powers la 

2. tielligerents are forbidden to move 
troops or convoys of either munitions 
of war or supplies across the terri- 
tory of a neutral power. 

The United States signed the convention 

that includes these declarations. Elihu 

Root was secretary of state when that was 

done. Theodore Roosevelt was president 

of the United States. They ought to 


If the traditional policy of noninterfer- 
ence in European quarrels was revoked in

There s?ems to be at least a neighbor- 
hood denund for a bridge across Chester 
creek between Eighth and Ninth streets — 
to be built by the city at a cost of some- 
thing less than forty thousand dollars, and 
to be use i by the street railway company 
as well at general traffic. 

A stree*. car extension on that level east 
of Chester creek would open up a now 
thinly seitled territory to home-building. 
To be complete, of course, it would have 
to be followed by paving Eighth street, 
especially if the cars arc to go there. That 
expense should not be forgotten by those 
who are urging this improvement. The 
cost would not stop at the cost of the 

The plan is worth discussing, but all 
sides of t should be brought out. There 
is opposi ion on the ground that it would 
spoil Chester park, one of the most beauti- 
ful breatliing spots in the whole city. To 
this the proponents of the plan say the 
bridge pi ins are ornamental; though at the 
bottom of the bridge, where sprawling 
bridge-lcfjs only are in evidence, it would 
be difficult to make it ornamental; and there 
is where the park is. This point should be 
considered thoroughly. 

There are other points, too. Street car 
extensior seems to be the main aim. Is 
there as .urance that the car line will be 
extended if the bridge is built? That ought 
to be made clear. The city is asked to 
spend ui arly forty thousand dollars — dis- 
interested taxpayers will want to know 
whether the city can do that without jeop- 
ardizing other improvements of importance. 

New York Times: The old house of repre- 
sentatives, called Statuary Hall since it was 
doomed to rec?lve the statues of two emi- 
nent persons from each state, added last 
week to Its trMisures the more or less true 
effigy of Henry Mower Rice, first delegate 
In congress of the territory, first representa- 
tive in congress of the state, of Minnesota. 
Mr. Rice Is clad In a "statesman's frock 
coat," the ri^ht skirt of it moving 'In the 
winds of his own eloquence or the draught 
of the hall, arid he Is Inclosed as to his legs 
in trousers whose excessive length and 
wealth of fold at the ankles may faithfully 
reflect the Impressionistic methods of the 
pioneer tailor. 

No doubt Henry Mower Rice was a citizen 
of credit and renown, fit to be venerated as 
a founder of the Gopher empire; and It Is 
the right of the Mlnnesotans to choose what 
local hero they please to stand In that cold 
Chamber of Horrors. But the strain on the 
memory of Washington and on the patience 
of their victims Is "becoming acute." 

Time plays rude tricks with fames of much 
wider circulation than that of the estimable 
Mr. Rice. A few years ago the statue of 
Col. E. D. Baker was set up In Statuary Hall. 
He had been successively famous In Illinois, 
California. Oregon. He was a friend of Lin- 
coln, an orator whose funeral panegyric of 
Dave Broderlck. "Reply to Breckenridge," 
and Union Square address at the beginning 
of the Civil war used to be in the school 
"Speakers." He refused a niajor-goneralshlp 
and I'-ft the senate to die a colonel at Ball's 
Bluff. There was Inquiry in many newspa- 
pers. "Who was Baker?" A gallant figure, 
lacking only the good fortune of youth, he 
seemed forgotten, while Elmer Ellsworth 
and Theodore Winthrop were remembered. 
Caprices and Injustices of glory: A hundred 
years hence what will have become of the 
distinction of Henry Mower Rice, which 
never had more than a parochial scope? 

Besides, will not Minnesota regret, even 
before fifty years are past, that she did not

l,Torl^ Post Saturday Magazine. In 1792, 
shortly after the United States launched out 
i^as an Independent nation, and before Euro- 
TpeAlt nations wefe quite reconciled to the 
fact that there was In the world an inde- 
pendent nation outside of Europe, France 
■ and England began a war which lasted until 
17J7. During 1793 and 1794 France was 
passing through the reign of terror, and 
this, together wltii the fact that the Amer- 
icans had not yet overcome their bitterness 
toward England, combined to make for 
French sympathy In this country. There 
were many who also contended that because 
of the help which France gave to this coun- 
try during the revolution the United States 
was in honor bound, if not to render active 
assistance, at least to aid France In every 
way possible short of sending troops or 
men-of-war. Washington looked at the ques- 
tion In a different light, and backed by Alex- 
ander Hamilton, proclaimed the neutrality of 
this country. 

The French, very desirous of retaining 
the good opinion of America, through their 
ambassador. Genet, began a public city cam- 
paign not unlike that which Dumba, lately 
ambassador from Austria-Hungary. and 
Dernburg, the German propagandist, began 
In this country last year. Genet went to 
sUch lengths that his government was final- 
ly requested to send for him. and he left 
the country for the same rea.son that Ambas- 
sador Dumba did. But France Immediately 
appointed a successor, one Adet, who had 
hardly become established here before he 
tried to Influence the election of 1796 and 
was severely reprimanded and threatened 
with deportation. To hi.'; appeals to Amer- 
ican citizens to violate their policy of neu- 
trality, Hamilton made answer in these 
words: "We have acted right hitherto in 
laving it down as a principle, not to suf- 
fer ourselves to be drawn into the wars 
of Europe; and if we must have war, I 
hope It will be for refusing to depart 
from that principle." 

On the subject of preparedness Hamil- 
ton also expressed opinions which apply 
to a certain extent to the present situa- 
tion. In 1794 it seemed for a time as if 
there would certainly be war between 
this country and Great Britain. Hamilton 
saw that the United States was unpre- 
pared for war and proposed the mission 
of Jay to England, which resulted In the 
Jay treaty ajid peace. In a letter to 
Washington, written In April, 1794, Ham- 
ilton advised the following course of con- 
duct toward Great Britain: 

To take effectual mea.sures of mili- 
tary preparation, creating, in earnest, 
force and revenue; to vest the presi- 
dent with Important powers respecting 
navigation and commerce for ulterior 
contingencies — to endeavor by another 
effort of negotiation, confided to hands 
able to manage it, and friendly to the 
object, to obtain reparation for the 
wrongs we suffer, and a demarkatjon 
of a line of conduct to govern the fu- 
ture; to avoid till the Issue of that ex- 
periment all measures of a nature to 
occasion a conflict between the motives 
which might dispose the British gov- 
ernment to do us the justice to which 
we are entitled and the sense of Us 
own dignity. If this experiment falls, 
then, and not till then, to resort to 
reprisals and war. 
Again, in 1797. when relations between 
the United States and France were strained 
almost to the breaking point. Hamilton 
wrote to Washington: 

My anxiety to maintain peace with 
France is known to you, and it must be 
the wish of every prudent man that no 
honorable expedient for avoiding a 
rupture be omitted. "let there are 
bounds tto all things. This country caii 
not see its trade an «»>sol"t'L.l^>"ey to 
France without resistance. "We seem 
to be where we were with Great Brit- 
ain when Mr. Jay was sent thfre. and 
I can not discern but that the spirit 
of the policy then pursued with regard 
to England will be the proper one now 
in Vespect to France, viz.. a solemn 
and final appeal to the justice and in- 
terest of France, and. If this will not 
do, measures of self-defense.

Brief Paragraphs From the Woherinc State Pr«B. 

Lending the Bank'* Moner. 

If the bank confined itself to receiving 
money offered for deposit and paying It out 
again on checks, it would render a very 
great and necessary service to the individual 
and the community, but It would soon cease 
to exist, because the life blood of all busi- 
ness (profits) would be lacking. The opera- 
tion of a bank is expensive, and to hlfo 
clerks, pay rent, buy stationery and build 
vaults, merely to protect money and handle 
checking accounts, without some source of 
Income, w^ould prove a costly undertaking. 
Therefore, the bank must seek some 
steady source of revenue, and finds it in 
lending the money of its stockholders and 
depositors to those who can use more than 
they have, and are willing to pay for tho 
accommodation. And only as it loans lt» 
funds, and gets them back with interest can 
It^long operate as a going concern. 

The peculiar fact of the matter is that s 
dollar In the bank will do as much work 
aa from $4 to $a elsewhere. In a tech- 
nical sense the banker does not loan money. 
He does not want your money 
to loan, but to use as a basis of credit, and 
$1 to him is as good as $4 for business 
purposes. This may seem an impossible 
proposition. Let us prove It. 

Experience has proven that everybody 
does not want all their money at the samo 
time. If 100 people were each to deposit 
$100 In a bank, the banker could safely 
assume that not over one-quarter of them 
would call for their money at one time. As 
a matter of fact, less than 15 per cent would 
do so; therefore. If out of every dollar de- 
posited, the banker keeps 15 cents in money, 
he can meet every ordinary demand for cash. 
When an unusual call arises, It Is called a 
"bank run," which merely mean." that mora 
than the usual number of people are de- 
manding their money at one time. 

Working on this theory, the banker doea 
not, out of the $100 you deposit, lend, let u^ 
say, $90; he puts $100 in his vault (in his 
reserve) and discounts the notes of his cus- 
tomers, j»lacing the proceeds to their credit, 
against which they can check, the same as 
if they had deposited cash. The, banker 
works on the law of averages and seldom 
does this law fall him, foi as long as he has 
a certain percentage of his obligations in 
cash, or quickly available, he is safe. (The 
amount of reserve money varies. In no case 
being legally required to be more than 18 
per cent of the deposits). 

If, therefore, the banker with $1 in money 
can lend you $10 In credit when you hold 
back $10. you deprive the community of $100 
in credit. The banker is a credit alchemist, 
making $1 do the work of many, and you 
owe It to him, to yourself and to yotir com- 
munity to make the credit structure as big 
and as strong as possible. 

The place for every dollar that you do not 
need for your daily necessities is In the 
bank, for the bank will not only protect 
It against fire and thieves, pay it back on 
demand, but by the alchemistic process 
known only to banking, turn it Into ten 
credit dollars, which are as effective in the 
business world as money dollars - and 
cheaper. This Is the bank's greatest aervlco 
to the community and to you.

Hurrying Days. 

The march of time is swift and 
steady, the speeding days we cannot 
hold ; six weeks of '16 gone already, be- 
fore our New Year vows are cold! It's 
truly hard to realize it, that six fat 
weeks have jumped the track; and yet 
no gentleman denies it, who keeps tab 
on the almanac. The spring will come 
before we know it, with all its wealth 
of growing greens, when every long- 
haired bughouse poet sends sonnets to 
the magazines. The summer will be 
with us shortly, to fill a want that's 
long been felt; then delegates who're 
stout and portly will wonder why they 
do not melt. And then the fall, both 
chill and balmy, its place in the pro- 
cession swipes; and, when the nights 
grow cold and clammy, we'll put up 
stoves and cuss the pipes. Then win- 
ter, arrogant and burly, will shake ^s 
with his frosty fins, and we will do 
our shopping early, before the Christ- 
mas rush begins. Thus go the days, 
and thus the seasons, they hurry past, 
to come no more; and there are fifty 
thousand reasons why we should make 
each moment score. 

elgn relations to warring nations as states- 
men today have come to view it. and that 
President Wilson Is pursuing a policy which 
proved sound at the outset of this nation's 
existence as an Independent pow er. 

No Bargain With Germany 

The New Republic: We cannot drop the 
Lusitanla matter without a word of warn- 
ing Germany has succeeded In escaping 
the penalty for an act of deliberate of maleft 
Icence. The American government, which 
connived at her escape, should be particu- 
larly careful not to let the escape of a 
malefactor be converted Into a triumph of 
German policy. 

• The German government ordered the Lu- 
sitanla to be torpedoed for the purpose of 
calling the attention of the United States 
to what it believed to be the Injustice of 
the British maritime policy. It only suc- 
ceeded in throwing Into clear relief the de- 
pendence of the United States upon Brit- 
ish sea power, and the joint responsibility 
of the two powers to associate the freedom 
of the seas with their adequate control. 

The Lusitanla "settlement" should not 
change in the least bit IThe existing atti- 
tude of the United States towards Great 
Britain. It does not license our government 
to bring anv additional pressure on Great 
Britain either to lift or to legalize the em- 
bargo. If it is Interpreted In that way Mr. 
Wilson's administration will commit the 
most Irreparable and grievous mistake of 
Its career. How and how much the United 
etates protests against the British treat- 
ment of neutral commerce is a matter which 
the American government must settle for 
Itself according to its own Interests, and 
quit© without reference to any jointly hu- 
miliating bargaining with German y.

Michigan DreaniM a Dream. 

Marquette Chronicle: Former Governor 
Osborn now says that he will not enter the 
primary as a candidate for president, but 
he win throw his support to Senator Will- 
lam Alden Smith. Now Michigan can go 
into the Chicago convention with a candi- 
date that has the indorsement of the entire 
state, and with Hughes as good as out of 
it, maybe Michigan will stand as good a 
show of landing her favorite son as the 
other states. The senator was always lucky, 
and as it is no one's race, and if Hughes 
does not change his mind, we are not so 
sure that Smith might not grab the plum 
when it drops. Stranger things have hap- 
pened, and also its about time Michigan 
landed In the presidential column. 

They'll Try Anything If They Think It Will 


Crystal Falls Diamond Drill: Judging 
from the comments of some of our contem- 
poraries there is great fear lest, should 
Chase S. Osborn be chosen temporary chair- 
man of the Republican national convention, 
he will stampede the convention. Well, per- 
haps It wouldn't be so amiss should the Re- 
publicans try a stampeded convention; they 
tried a steam rolled one four years ago and 
that failed.

We think It a gallant thing, to be flutter- 
ing up to heaven with our wings of knowl- 
edge and speculation; whereas the high- 
est mystery of a divine life here, and of per- 
fect happiness hereafter, consists In nothing 
but mere obedience to the Divine will. Hap- 
'pinoss is nothing but that inward .= weet da- 
light, which will arise from the h.Trmonious 
agreement between our wills and the will 
of God. There is nothing in the whole 
world able to do us good or hurt, but God. 
and T.ur own will; neither riches nor pov- 
erty, nor disgrace nor honor, nor life nor 
death, nor angels nor devils; but willing, or 
not willing, as we ought. — Ralph Cudvorth. 

The one misery of man !s self-will, the one 
secret of blessedness Is the conquest over 
our own wills. To yield them up to God Is 
rest and peace. What disturbs us In this 
world Is not "trouble," but our opposition 
to trouble. The true source of all that frets 
and irritates and wears away our lives Is 
not In external things, but In the resistance 
of our wills to the will of God expressed by 
external things. — Alexander MacLaren.

act of sneezing. A sneeze not only 
forcibly ejects droplets containing in- 
fectious organisms, but it has a re- 
markable effect upon the circulation 
and nutrition of the lining of the nose, 
tending to fortify the mucous mem- 
brane against microbic Invasions — or. 
If you will have it so, taking "cold." 

When you sneeze you do It for the 
good of your health. Xo one has a 
right to interfere with your =neezing. 
BOR'S FACE. That doesn't sound ex- 
actly elegant, but neither does the 
open-face sneeze. In fact we are per- 
sonally convinced that open-face 
sneezing is a far more dangerous thing 
for the bystander than is expectora- 
tion, because the sneeze sprays the air 
with minute floating droplets of mucus 
or moisture in which are suspended 
live bacteria, and bystanders can 
scarcely withstand this drying process, 
as practical experience has shown.

Rice Lake, Wis., Feb. 2 0. 


The Indefensible habit of expectora- 
tion, and the unpleasant thought of 
using a roller towel or a common 
drinking cup or a public toilet do not 
inspire nearly so much fear In our 
timid mind as the execrable wretch 
who perpetrates a wide-open sneeze 
upon the occupants of a car, theater 
or room. Such a peddler of infection 
is a nuisance of the first magnitude. 
The time will come, we trust, when he 
will be promptly and xinceremoniously 
grabbed by the collar and dragged off 
to a sanitary cell In the nearest po- 
lice station, where he belongs. Police- 
men ought to be active members of 
the first line of defense anyway. 

Street cars, .steam cars, public halls 
and the like should add a line to their 
notices forbidding spitting on the 
fioor. They should also warn the pub- 
lic as follows: 


To the Editor of The Herald: 

In an editorial column of The Herald 
Feb. 19 it was said that banks should 
help depositors get as much as 6 per 
cent and better on deposits. AVill say 
depositors at the Duluth and Superior 
banks dont have to wait for them to 
do that, as all the banks in the farming 
country in Northwestern Minnesota are 
paying 6 per cent on deposits and run- 
ning big display advertisements to get 
them. Yours from N. W. MINN,

Answer — That depends. Not when It 
Is peddled and dipped in the wagon or

That he would forever guard me 
Were my heart but his alone. 

You remember how I trusted, 

How my thoughts were all for him. 

Draw the curtain higher, moiher. 
For the light Is growing dim. 

Need I tell you how he left me, 

Coldly putting me aside; 
How he wooed and won another 

And now claims her as his bride? 

Life has been a weary burden 

Since those hours of deepest woe; 

Wipe these cold drops from my fore- 
head — 
They are death drops Well I know. 

Gladly I obey the summon.s 
To a bright and better land. 

Where no hearts are won and broken, 
But all form a happy band. 

Do not chide him, mother darling. 

Though my form you see no more, 
Grieve not. Think me only waiting 

For you on the other shore. 

Do not chide him, mother darling. 

Though you miss me from your .•-ride; 
I forgive him, and I wish him 

Joy witli her so soon his bride. 

Take this ring from off mj' finger. 
Where he placed it long ago. 

Give it to him as a blessing 
That in dying 1 bestow. 

Tell him that it Is a token 
Of forgiveness and of peace. 

Hark! I hear his voice! — It passeth. 
Will those watching never cease? 

Hark! I hear his footsteps coming — 
No, 'tis but the rustling trees. 

Strange how my disordered fancv 
Caught his footfall on the breeze. 

I am cold, now; close the window. 

Fold me closer — kiss me, too. 
Joy! What means that burst of music? 

'Tls the Savior's voice. I know. 

See Him waiting to receive me! 

Oh, how great a bliss to die! 
Mother, nieet your child in heaven — 

One more kiss, and then — goodby!

Jesiie James. 

Jesse James was a man that killed 
many men. 
And suffered many a pain. 
He was with his brother, Frank, when 
they robbed the national bank. 
And shot the cashier dead. 

Jesse James leaves a wife to mourn 
all her life. 
His children, they were brave. 
'Twas a dirty little coward that shot 
Mr. Howard, 
And laid Jesse cold In the grave. 

It was on a Saturday night when the 

stars were shining bright. 

They robbed the Dtnver train. 

It was one of the Younger brothers 

that opened up the safe. 

And the money they carried away. 

Frank and Jesse James to the depot 
they did go 
Not many years ago. 
And the agent, on his knees, delivered 
up the keys 
To Frank and Jesse James. 

Jesse James stood on a chair dusting 
pictures on the wall. 
When all at once he thought he 
heard a sound. 
And he went to turn his head when 
the pistol shot him dead. 
And laid Jesse cold on the ground. 

The people held their breath when 
they heard of Jesse's death. 
And wondered how he came to die. 
It was for the great reward that that 
little Robert Ford 
Shot Jesse James on the sly.

Ohio Physician.

Dr F. M. Edwards for 17 years treat- 
ed scores of women for liver and bowel 
aliments. During these years he gave 
to his patients a prescription made of a 
few well-known vegetable ingredients 
mixed with olive oil, naming them Dr. 
Edwards' Olive Tablets, you will know 
them by their olive color. 

These tablets are wonder-workers on 
the liver and bowels, which cause a 
normal action, carrying off the waste 
and poisonous matter that one's sys- 
tem collects. 

If you have a pale face, sallow look, 
dull eyes, pimples, coated tongue, 
headaches, a listless, no-good feeling, 
all out of sorts. Inactive bowels, you 
take one of Dr. Edwards' Olive Tab- 
lets nightly for a time and note the 
pleasing results. 

Thousands of women as well as men, 
take Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets now 
and then just to keep in the pink of 

Dr. Edwards' Olive Tablets, the suc- 
cessful substitute for calomel — 10c and 
26c per box. All druggists.

Just one short glance — 'twas his only 
chance — but the signal light wag

Some day you'll hit on a 
Sensible cigarette 

the most sensible ciga- 
rette for them that 
Fatimas now outsell 
every other cigarette 
costing over 5c. 

Doesn't it seem rea- 
sonable that you will 
like Fatimas best too? 

And as soon as you 
smoke it, you'll at once 
know that it's sensible: 

(1) It will please your 
taste. That goes with- 
out saying, otherwise it 
would not be sensible 
for you. 

(2) It will be com- 
fortable to your throat 
and tongue — not hot or 
bity as some cigarettes 

(3) And it will not 
leave you feeling ''over- 
smoked" even after a 
long- smoking day. 

We would like to 
have you match Fatima 
against each one of 
those three points for a 
sensible cigarette. Then 
try any other ciga- 
rette made on those 
same points. 

So many other men

yours can be cured. The infor-

!Mr. Barnes the absohite assurance that 
he la free frori any pledge or control 
of any kind. 1 

Mr. Barnes clnalders this recognition 
of the pre-emlnen<e of the Lake Supe- 
t rlor route as the distributing point for 
! the Northwest as a great vindication 
for the principles for which Duluth 
has been tlghtUtg for so long and be- 
lieve* that It ^canfvot help but grow 
Into a great Influence for the Head of 
the Liakes location.^ 

The admission was made to him by 
a railroad official prominently con- 
nected with oiSi OV the Eastern roadg 
that the fundamental theories which 
Duluth has bee^i advocating are right. 
The railroad* had to oppose them, 
this official said, but now know that 
I they are licked. 

The Twin City Interests have been 
claiming that they are "in the angle of 
I the lakes," and can be served equally 
well through Duluth or Chicago. The 
I new turn of things explodes that idea 
and leaves the Lake Superior route as 
the logical one. 

Again using flour shipments as an 
example: Last year more than 6,000,- 
000 barrels of flour from Minneapolis 
were shipped through here, and fully 
as much was shipped through Chicago. 
It is considered logical that the busl- 
iieaa that has been going through Chi-: 
fcago will be diverted to the Lake Su- 
perior route, which will mean a doub- 
ling of the business through here. That 
applies. It Is claimed, to every other

"The alli»^s 1 ave brought about a 
compl^'ie union without the sacrifice 
by any one of them of a particle 
of indep.-ndenc or personality. With 
the enemy It hi different. tJormany's 
allies have become vassals. It Is hard

"The signature by the five allied 
powers to th'> treaty to conclude peace 
in common pro\es the falsity of absurd 
rumors of a »»* >araTe peace." 

M. SazonofT also dealt with the Pol- 
ish problem In !ils address. 

"From the beginning of the war. 
he said. "Russi I has had Inscribed on 
her banner the eunlon of dismembered 
Poland and ne'er has thla teased to 
be our aim. Cermany has granted a 
few n:inor con es.-' to Poland and 
in return, it la said, she contemplates 
raising of thousands of Pol- 
ish troops, to le used In the attempt 
to bring abou the triumph of Ger- 
nianism." " , ^, , . 

In regard to Russia s relations with 
Sweden th-j sign minister said: 
FrleadsUip for S»Tedea. 
"Our only sentiment t»)ward the 
Swedes is o!ie of sincere friendship. 
Any pretext of conflicting Interests 
could only be jtrtlflclal. Russia's his- 
tory does not impel her towards the 
coast of Scan, Inavia. She must ob- 
tain an outlet in a free sea In quite 
another direction." 

M. .^azonoft' then turned 
mania, aaylng: 

"Roumania t» iH not betray her own 
interests and when the hour strikes 
she will know how to realixe- her na- 
tional unity a: the cost of her own 
blood. She mar h^ certain- that In de- 
fending hersel' against <he attempts 
of a common memy to- Interfere with 
the inJependei ce of hr'-r decision

Toward the end «f his address 
Sazonoff took up the subject of Rus- 
sian-American relations. 

"The Interesk which American In- 
dustry has In our markets." he said, 
"permit of the hope that In addition 
to the rrlendlj political relations now 
existing between th%' two countrle.*, 
an rapprochement may be

greatest benef t to both nations. 

"In any the Russian govern-

CMUn An-e'Hcaii Sympathies. 
The foreign minister also referred 
to the "mala«'roii and importunate

failed in its object but provoked a 
certain irritation and appreciably 
chilled American sympathies for Ger-

from old conditions. Under his regime. 
he declares, each line must pay a profit 
and there will be no case of mailing 
one hand wash the other. 

In his statements to Mr. Barnes, M,r. 
Conners assured the Duluth man that. 
in his opinion, the change means the 
pre-eminence of this port for all North- 
western business and that, as a result 
of this development. It means, further, 
that there will be a decided Increase in 
docks and a very large increase In 
employment of men to handle the 
goods that will be carried east and 
west through here. 

Floar Rate ai« Fxaraplc. 
There are many instances and ex- 
amples to draw from, which would 
show wherein Duluth will profit by 
the changed policy that will result 
fiom Mr. Conners' entrance into the 
transportation game. The of flour 
shipments are as good as any. 

Under old conditions, the lake-and- 
I rail lines have maintained equal rates 
between the Twin Cities and New York 
on flour shipments originating at Min- 
neapolis, no matter whether tliey went 
by way of Duluth and Lake Superior or 
by way of Chicago and Lake Michigan. 
The rate was 23 cents either way. It 
was divided as follows; 

Via Duluth— Rail, west of Duluth. 6 
cents: lake. 8.4 cents; and rail, east of 
Buffalo, 9.6 cents. 

Via Chicago — Rail, west of Chicago, 
8.3 cents: by lake, 5.1; and by rail east 
of Buffalo. 9.6 cents. 

The railroads east of Buffalo Insist 
upon obtaining 9.6 cents so the rate 
adjustments have to be made west of 

It Is known that the old Lake Michi- 
gan rate was a loser, so if Mr. Con- 
ners' compan.v adheres to its determin- 
ation to make that route pay, the rate* 
will have to be raised from 5.1 on flour 
to a rate that equalize;} wltli the 8.4 
rate from Duluth. 

Xp to Western Bonds. 
If this Is done, and the railroads 
favoring Minneapolis, insist upon keep- 
ing the rates via Duluth and via Chi- 
cago equal, they will have to cut some- 
where. The Eastern roads will not do 
RO, so It win apparently be up to the 
Western roads to do the rutting. That 
will necessitate the roads from Minne- 
apolis to Chicago to cut from their 
present rate of 8.3 to 6.8 cents or there- 

No traffic men here believe that the 
roads are likely to make any such cut 
as It would mean doing business at a 

Aside from these rale divisions, an- 
other thing cuts a big figure in de- 
termining the route of shipment. That 
Is the cost of handling freight at the 
transfer points. At Chicago, It costs 
42 cents a ton to transfer the freight 
from cars to boat or vice versa: at 
Gladstone. Mich.. It costs 17 Vi <ents; 
and at Duluth It costs 7 to 8 centa 

Other commodities shipped east and 
west will be similarly affected, but the 
flour rate gives a general llustratlon 
which win apply, proportionately, to 

Dalath Shonld Be Gateway. 
Mr. Barnes, who has been In con- 
sultation with Mr. Conners, with ref- 
erence to the organization of the new 
line, and the matter of Its operation. 
Is authority for the statement that Mr. 
Conners told him in New York In a 
personal interview that he felt that the 
trade of the Northwest should move 
through Duluth and that the lake line 
would no longer sacrifice Its earnings 
to move through Lake Michigan ports 
the traffic that, upon the line of least 
resistance, should move through Du- 
luth. Mr. Conners stated that this lake 



asserted Mrs. Rowe had In addition 
"padded" the puvroU. 

Mrs. Margaret E. Mlvelaz, sister of 
Mrs. Thompson and alleged recipient 
of the salary graft, denied that she 
had ever received any financial aid in 
the manner charged. 

Perforaie4 ^'o Servlee. 
Miss Kmma Lundby, a stenographer, 
Mrs. Kaion asserted, was carried on the 
payroll without performing any serv- 
ice. Miss Lundby denied the charge. 
She said she was on Mrs. Rowe"."» pay- 
roll from July 1 until Jan. 6, and de- 
clared that she worked constantly. 

Miss Julia Keller, Mrs. Rowe's reg- 
ular junior stenographer, went to Cali- 
fornia for her health July 1 and after 
several extensions of leave of absence 
returned Jan. 5 and Miss Lundby was 
taken off the payroll. 

"Two months* after Mls.s Keller went 
awa.v," said Mrs. Eaton, "lier place was 
not filled. Soon after she had gone 
Mrs. Howe called me into her private 
office. Slie said Miss Keller's position

"•1 propose,* said Mrs. Rowe, 'that 
we carry a dt'ramy on the payrolls dur- 
ing Miss Keller's absence and split the 
180 salary between us.'

business and I would have nothing to

Denies Padding R»ll. 
Mrs. Rowe denied the charges that 
the payroll had plan "padded" and as- 
serted that she had never even spoken 
of placing dummies' on the payroll. 

"There are no duuimles" on my pay- 
roll," Maid Mrs.. Rowe. "Everybody on 
my payroll has to work hard." 

Miss Lundby said that she worked as 
a stenographer and Investigator, tak- 
ing dictation from Mrs. Rowe at her 
office, typing the letfws at home and 
returning them to Mrs. Rowe for her 

".\fter my talk with Mrs. Rowe I 
went over to the office of Seymour 
Stedman, my lawyer. I told him all 
about Mrs. Rowe's proposal," said Mrs. 

" 'Steddle,' said I, 'did you ever hear 
of such an Insult? What does she take 
me for? Can you beat it?' 

•* 'Why dldtvt you biff her one in tho 
nose?' was* Mr. Stedman's comment." 
Payroll Held Up. 
The city civil service commission to- 
day ordered the payroll of the depart- 
ment of public welfare held up for In- 
vestigation of the graft charges made 
by Mrs. Page Waller Eaton, against 
Mrs. Louise Osborne Howe, department 

The order was issued by Percy Cof- 
fin, -president of the commission end 
was the 'Irst st<^p in the official in-

Allegations that Fred Lundin. former 
congressman and present political ad- 
viser of the mayor, dominated the city 
hall and assertions of payroll padding 
in the department of public welfare 
were features of the scandal.

A recent trip by a delegation of busi- 
ness men of Minneapolis to Ashland, 
at which time the sympathies of the 
business men of the Wisconsin city 
were enlisted for the "sad" condition 
of the Minneapolis shippers, dominated 
by Duluth. on promises by the latter 
that arrangements are about to be 
made to have the Twin City package 
freight business that comes by lake, 
dlvertf-d from Duluth to Ashland, has 
excited the people of the latter city 
and sonie others. 

The Ashland business men have vi- 
sions of that port becoming a rival of 
this city as a great lake port, and that 
Illusion — for such It Is termed by traf- 
fic men of this city — has been helped 
along. It Is claimed, by the promises 
of the Soo Line to build a direct line 
from Minneapolis to Ashland and thus 
take care of the business that is ex- 
pected to come through the latter city 
for the Twin Cities. 

Promises were made by the Minne- 
apolis visitors that a freight rate 
would be obtained and guaranteed that 
would be proportionately lower than 
that through Duluth. and divert much 
bu.'^iness from this point. It was even 
tentatively agreed that the Minneap- 
olis and Ashland business Interests 
should either combine In chartering a 
steamer or two to engage in this trade, 
or would guariyitee enough 
to some line operating on 
Lakes to Induce It to 
a port of call. 

iiail RrMalMii «€••■•.- 
<i Roy Hall, traffic commissioner of 
the Duluth Commercial club, absolutely 
refuses to become excited over the 
matter. The blackest paint put on It 
fails to scare him. Said he. when the 
subi<^ct was broached: ^ ,., j 

"Well, Minneapolis promised Glad- 
atone. Mich., great things, ami failed 
to deliver the goods. Now they are 
trying to 'con" poor Ashland t.ven 
supposing that they should obtain the 
recognition of a package freight line, 
have It make Ashland a port of call, 
and send Its business through there, 
what good will It do Ashland or the 
Twin Cities and what Injury wHl It do 
to Duluth? The only satisfaction that 
the Twin Cities will have is that they 
win refuse to play with us. for thej 
will pay exactly the same freight 
rates. IJnfortunately for the Twin 
Cities thev cannot ttx the rate to suit 
themselves, for Xhe Interstate com- 
merce commission Is Jealous of its 
authority In this regarci. The dlfff/^n- 
tlals win be maintained regardless 
of what the Twin Cities want and re- 
gardless of the route, be assured of 

"As to Ashland's benefit, she will 
find that there Is none. The amount 
of freight passing through f .port or 
through any station on a ralUoad for 
that matter, never "^d®, « -<^V? .' V' 
It Is the amount of freight that Is 
handled by business houses In that 
cltv that brings the dollars to It. If 
Ashland thinks otherwise her business 
men will do well to th nk the matter 
over again and they will see the folly 

wilt B.»l«e.« NtK Frelcht '^"•'t,'- 

"So far as Duluth Is concerned, the 
amoSnt of business that will be taken 
Sway from this port will not be notice- 
able for the same reason that that 
added to Ashland will not benefit her.

There is a form of neurasthenia that 
follows the grip. Doctors call it "post- 
grippal" neurasthenia. 

One of the foremost medical author- 
ities of New York city in a lecture In 
the international clinics, said: 

"Broadly speaking, every victim of 
the grip will suffer from post-grippal 
neurasthenia also. Lowering of nerv- 
ous tone with increased Irritability is 
the most striking effect of the dis- 
ease, languor of mind and body, dis- 
turbed, fitful sleep and vague pains in 
the head and elsewhere. The treatment 
calls for rest and a tonic. 

If you have had the grip read those 
symptoms again: "Languor of mind 
and body, disturbed, fitful sleep and 
vague pains In the head and else- 
where." If you have any or all of 
them it means that you are still suf- 
fering from the effects of the grip 
and that you will not be well and 

free from danger of relapse until youf 
blood is built up. 

The treatment, says the distin- 
guished physician quoted above, is real 
and a tonic. Dr. Williams' Pink Pills, 
a non-alcoholic tonic, are particularly 
suited for building up the blood and 
strengthening the nerves after an at- 
tack of grip. The rich, rod blood ex- 
pels the lingering germs from the sys- 
tem and transforms despondent grtp 
victims into cheerful, healthy, huppy 
men and women. 

If you have had the grip do not wait 
for a relapse or for the neurasthenia 
that so often follows grip but get a 
box of Dr. Williams' Pink Pills now 
from the nearest drug store and be- 
gin the treatment at once. 

On request we will send you a fre« 
pamphlet, "Building Up the Blood," 
which contains a chapter on the after- 
effects of the grip. Address the Dr. 
Williams Medicine Co., Schenectady, 
N. T.

Commissioners Discuss the 

Move to Re-establish 

Civic Boards. 

Mayor Prince and the city commis- 
sioners resent the charges made by 
members of the charter commission 
last Monday, that the municipality la 
being operated by "Ave separate city 
governments instead of one." 

"It Is positively untrue that we 
never meet in the capacity of lJ<?ards 
to discuss the affairs of the differ- 
ent city divisions," declared Mayor 
Prince "We have done so continually 
and are seeking to do so more and 
more. It would seem that the Interest 
of some in criticizing the city commis- 
sioners is not actuated entirely by Ira- 
personal motives." oiiK«.,»foin 

Commissioners Farrell. Sllbersteln 
and Merritt declared that the council 
meets very often to discuss, informal- 
ly, various questions that have come 
up and that such a charge is absolute- 

^^The^'mavor and the commissioners 
also went 'on record as opposed to the 

cense 'to wed her sweetheart-convict. 
It was denied when it was learned 
that the bridegroom-to-be was a life 
termer. The woman then went to the 
penTtentlary and begged Warden Dick 
in vain to bring abcut the marriage 

She refused to reveal her identity, 
but told county officials her age was | 
21 and that her home was in bt. 
Louis. She also said Chlhola wooed 
her m St. Louis, following his escape 
from the penitentiary, and that they 
were preparing to be married when he 
was captured and brought back to Mc- 

She said she had come h«re to carry 
out the marriage promise. Apparently 
broken-hearted, she went to Mi.sko-

order to be near the man she cared

Petrograd, Feb. 23, via London.— The 
presence of Emperor Nicholas at the 
opening of the duma yesterday is 
hailed by the press and public as one 
of the most Important events In the 
whole political history of Russia. It 
is pointed out that the appearance of 
the emperor In the house has empha- 
sized in the most striking manner the 
increasing disposition of the govern- 
ment and people to lay aside inter- 
national politics and devote all their 
energies to a concerted effort to bring 
the war to a successful issue. 

The event is referred to by promi- 
nent members of the duma as "the be- 
ginning of a new era," and I'^ened la 
its far-reaching slgniftcance, to the 
emancipation of the serfs, and the 
manifesto of 1906.

Willard and Langford. 

They are talking some of remov- 
ing the ban on mixed matches in New 
York rings. The re noval of the rule 
against permitting I lacks and whites 
to fight, would mean that three broad 
shouldered and infinitely husky 
guardsmen would be thrown into 
juxtaposition to the prevailing Cau- 
casian contenders. The three of sable 
Iiue are Sam Langfi)rd, Sam McWy 
and Harry \N ills, larfe and excessive- 
ly healthy. 

Going further alorg the line of the 
argument, it would also mean that 
the name of Willard would immedi- 
ately be linked with the name of the 
best of the blacks. f Langford, pre- 
suming he is the gre itest of the pres- 
ent fighters, were to mingle in the 
ring with Willard. were to train con- 
scientiously and get right, and would 
give all he had, there would be a mad 
scramble for seats and points of van- 
ut^'i they have met several i lage. 

I'M Ik- h good match for Sig j Langford is a cave man, a throw-

except in the might of being. Wil- 
lard, on the other hand, is a giant, 
yet for his size do»s not possess the 
tremendous physical development of 
the black. It would be the old story 
of the big man against the great little 
man, and unless Willard is one of the 
best of the big men. he^would share 
the fate of other bij.: men who have 
gone against great little men, and be

Symptoms ! 

\A/HAT most people be- 
^ ^ lieve to be the disease 
C a t a r r h, is really only a 

The most common symp- 
tom of the presence of Ca- 
tarrh in the system is an in- 
flamed and tender condition 
of the breathing passages 
and the blocking of throat 
and nostrils with mucuous. 
It is a frequent mistake to 
treat this symptom and neg- 
lect the actual disease that 
causes it. 

Catarrh is the result of 
poisons and impurities in 
the blood These impurities 
must be removed before the 
disease can be cured. 

Tlie use of washes, nasal 
douches and soothing 
creams on the irritated 
membranes, can have but 
little effect — they merely 
ease the local irritation buf 
do not reach the disease. 

Catarrh is a disease of the 
blood. To cure it you must 

o to the seat of the trouble 
9. S. S. has proved in its 


You Must fit9t 
Remove the Cause I 

use in such cases for nearly 
half a century to be a most 
powerful antidote to poisons 
in the blood. 

d. S. S. is a s c i e n t i fi c 
blending of the extracts of 
certain native roots and 
herbs which act directly on 
the blood. Its a»:tion is to 
cleanse and purify and 
strengthen the bU od corpus- 
cles so they fight cff disease. 

Because of thii function 
S. S. S. is the one remedy 
that goes to the source of 
the trouble and re moves the 
cause of catarrh. 

If you suffer from catarrh 
in any of its forms, don't be 
misled into treating the 
symptoms, take S. S.S. and 
remove the caute of the 
^ local trouble. 

Druggists all over the 
Country can supply you 
with S. S. S. — b«» sure you 
get the genuine; "just-as-

By Close Score of 10 to 9; 
Defiel-Dunbar Rink De-

in Afternoon Play; St. Paul 
Rinks in Finals of Con- 

Shortly before midnight last night 
the Merrlam medal was safe In the 
possession of the Brewer-W^hyte rink. 
Counting St. Paul as the main curling 
enemy of Duluth, like the late Com- 
modore Perry, Duluth could say, "We 
have met the enemy and he Is ours." 
Early In the afternoon the visiting 
rinks were put out of the running. 
Dinham defeated Ralph Bradley ear- 
lier in the evening and the Brewer- 
Why tes aent the Wade rink of West 
Duluth to the sidelines. Then at 9:30, 
with members of both the finalist 
rinks dog tired, the final game was 
played between Dinham and Brewer, 
the latter rink winning by the score 
of 10 to 9. 

Brewer got away to a 4-point lead 
In the first head and was never headed. 
Dinbam's rink was clearly off form. 
Except In the final two heads, wnen 
the members of the Dinham rink found 
themselves and laid four rocks, giving 
the Brewers a severe scare, they were 
outcurled by the Brewers, who played 
a steady and consistent game. 

While Dinham made several perfect 
shots, shots that brought a vigorous 
and approving hand from the big gal- 
lery that followed the play, he, like 
his men, was off his game and missed 

several excellent opportunities In the 
early heads to cut down the lead of 
his opponent.".

Ralph Bradlev defeated Roy Hoople of

Duluth, which last year defeated 
George La Batt of Minneapolis for the 
state title, bid good-by to their chances 
In this draw, the Brewer crowd set- 
ting them back by the I'core of 14 to 
8. Fred Hoene defeated Catterson, 14 
to 9, and Patten of Duluth defeated 
McDonald of West Duluth by the score 
of 12 to 8. 

Immediately after this ceme the sud- 
den and rathei- unexpected massacre of 
the Defiel-Dunbar combination at the 
hands of Billy Dinhjtm. 

In the third end Dinham had the St. 
Paul rink down. 10 to 0. The Du- 
luth rink laid a six hep.d and outcurled 
the visitors at every angle of the 
game. Dinham made some great 
shots and ev>ry member of his rink 
was In excellent form, winning 17 
to 7. 

So peeved was Lem Defiel at the 
conclusion of the game that he refused 
to shake hands. This art f>t ungracious- 
ness and poor sportsmanship caused 
severe censure of the St. Paul skip.

St. Paul Representatives Threaten to'Withdraw 
From Northwestern Curling Assiidittion Un- 
less Apostle City Is Permitted touSiage Next 
Vyinter's Curling Show— Request Refused. 





2 for 25 cents 

Tt developed last night that St. Paul j 
made a determined effort most of yes- ^ 
terday to land next winter's North- , 
western bonspiel for the Saintly City. | 
The threats and pleadings that were 
employed by the St. Paul men in their 
effort to persuade local curling offi- 
cials to permit the down river city to 
stage next year's spiel, proved un- 1 
availing, and the 1916-17 bonspiel will i 
be staged risht here at home. | 

First the Detlel-Dunbar rink was 

sent here, at the behest of Louis Hill, 
it Is said, to lift the Merriam medal 
in order tliat the state curling cham- 
pionship might be decided in St. Paul 
next year in connection with the great 
midwinter carnival that is to be staged 
there. Then it was decided tliat it 
would bs a great act to have the 
Northwestern curling spiel held in St. 
Paul, and the proposition was put up 
to John K. Macgregor. president of the 
Northwestern Curling association, and 
other officials. 

"Notliing doing." came ba<'lt Mac- 
gregor. "Wc are going to have tiie 
greatest spiel in the country ntxt year. 
and It Is going to be held riglU in 
Duluth. Wk> expect to have 100 rinks. 
If we can't accommodate them all on 
the ice sheets of the Duluth Curling 


club, we have made tentative arrange- 
ments with the Superior Curling club 
to use their Jce In conjunction with 
our own. This arrangement would 
give us twenty-nine siieets of Ice. ■^^ e 
could have autoniobile.<? to take the 
curlers to and from Superior. We are 
out after the biggeaff-spiel in the coun- 
try — and il will be held here." 
Threaten ttt .J^'lthdraw. 
After receiving the ultimatum of t»e 
Duluth curlers In regard to the prop- 
osition of holding the bonspiel in St. 
Paul next w1.ntei. the St. Paul curl- 
ers came back with the statement that 
they would withdraw from the North- 
western Curling ajMociation uijies* 
their request wa.s acceded to. ^'V** 
threat proved a;* unavailing as the 
u»gent requests, an* It is now up to 
St. Paul. , ,^ 

The first verbal assault was made 
early in the day. Several o# the I>a- 
luth big gui<s in the curling game were 
buttonholed and diplomacy aired in all 
her arts and salve was spread with a 
tender hand. Diplomacy failing, the 
visitors resorted to urgent conversa- 
tion, pointing out th» fact that St. Paul 
should have the spiel, though St. Paul 
did not even put in a bid at the an- 
nual meeting of tlie association. Then 
came the threat to withdraw from the 
association. w j ^»,, 

Indeed. yfsierdt.y proved a bad day 
for St. Paul. 

I active members of their nearest 
branch, as the sportsmen now quite 
willingly cimcede the fact that the 
continuance of shooting and tl.«hing Is 
' strlctlv up to them and that they can 
' no* longer expect to retain either 
branch of sport If they do not get out 
and work for It." _

The final games of the Intermediate 
Basket Ball league will be played this 
evening at the Y. M. C. A. All of the 
teams have strengthened their lineups, 
and. as they all want to make a whirl- 
wind finish, the games should prove 
exceptionally interesting. 

By defeating the Peytons last week 
the Centrals cinched the championship 
of the league, but the fight for other 
places in the final standing Is not yet 
over. The "Y" Juniors, a combination 
of high school players in the gvm- 
nasium classes, have taken the place 
of the Marines afd- tijey will oppose 
the Centrals tonigbt. The high school 
lads put up a gftod game In their 
first contest last week and they should 
make things interesting for the champs 
I tonight. 

I The fast Peytons, who barely lost 
out to the Business College men last 
week, will make a big attempt to re- 
deem themselves whew they take on 
the Dormitory Blues. The Blues have 
strengthened their team and they 
should put up a good contest. The 
Ennkavs will tackle the scrappy Cubs 
In the third game of the evening. Both 
teams are evenly inatched and the 
game should prove a hummer. 

The young league is developing some 
fast players and some good basket ball 
has been played all season. The class 
of the league wa» aevnonstrated last 
week when the Business College men 
defeated the Proctor Y. M. C. A. ag- 

gregation, one of the fastest independ- 
ent teams at the Head of th e Lakes, , 


Frank J. Lansche. an Inflelder from

good pair of hands, and a good sticker. 

Several trades are pending. The lo- 
cal club has been made an offer in 
trade for Baker, who was obtained 
from Winnipeg. Little is knoWn of the 
worth of the players offered.

dresses Congressman. 


Bemidji Man Wants to 

Know of Lindbergh's Claim 

Treaty Is Obsolete. 

Itftriidji. Minn., Feb. 23. — ^Special to 
Th<e lit; aid.) — Following articles in the 
newppaptrs stating that Cnngreesman 
€hailt;.«i A. Lindbergh of this district 
had written to a friend in Brainerd 
saying that he was in favor of abrogat- 
ing the Indian treaty of 1866. strenu- 
ous action has been taken by Bemidji 
men who favor the treaty to pre- 
vert the annulment of the treaty and 
to perpetuate the Indian lid. 

A law enforcement league has been 
formed and J. J. Opsahl, president of 
the 1866 Indian Treaty Enforcement 
league which was organized shortly 
after the decision ngainst Ihe saloons 
by the Unlttd States supreme court 
in 1*14, on Tuesday wrote the follow 
Ing letter to Congres.«man Lindbergh: 
Letter to Lindbergh. 

"Hon. C. A. Llndbtrgh, M. C. Wash- 
ington. D. C— Dear Sir: Have noted the 
newspaper reports, on your 1866 Indian 
treaty comment (in which you are 
quoted as follows): 

"First — That you will introduce a bill 
to revoke the treaty if the majority 
of your district demands it. 

"Second — That this treaty is obsolete 
and has outlived its usefulness. 

"'Third — That the dignity of the state 
ia affected. 

"As you are generally frank in your 
declarations, I would like to have a 
little more Information on these three 
points raised by you.

"First-* In which way are you to de- 
termine the majority wishes? (Two 
year.s ago, seveial thousand from this 
district sent you requests to go to the 
interior department and ask for en- 
forcements of the 1855 law, as home 

"Second — On the point of obsolete- 
ness: How about the fact that we have 
at present time more Indians in this 
part of Minnesota than in 1865? (If 
Indians are the only consideration), 
but have not you. as well as a few 
others, cj-erlooked the main fundamen- 
tal priiK-iple and purpose of the treaty, 
its home protection?" 

"Wht-n the commissioners represent- 
ing congr«'ss m*t with the Indian 
chiefs to negotiate the treaty, it was 
done for the purpose of securing this

The farmers ojf this section are 
agitated over the election of I'resident 
Worst to the place of president 
emeritus, and over the statements he 
has made and the evidence that he has

by h^astern capitalists. 

The Indications are that the matter 
will be taken up by the Non-partisan 
league, whicii seems to be quite strong 
in the slate at the present time at least. 
The statement that the league Is to 
take up the flght is considered borne 
out by the efforts made to have Preal- 
dent Worst run for governor on the 
Republican ticket with the indorsement 
of the league.

the I'nit' il States irrespective of color

forwaid! to the day that at least part 
(.f the i^d brothers would live there as 
good, full-rt»dged citizens of the 
Stat( s as any immigrant from a king's 
or kaiser's realm across the Atlantic, 
and th"* conditions of these chiefs 
t which was accepted and ratified by 
couK'css) was that, the Big Father 
could have these lands as homes for 
the citizens of tiie United Slates (red 
or whil<). but one of the conditions 
was that booze should be kept out of 
the district. 

'"['he Indiiins" wards were selling the 
land.1 and rnovine; out as one of the 
conditions, wliites were expected to 
move in. and the purpose was to keep 
booze uway fri>m the red and white 
alike, and the commissioners as well 
as till- chiefs agreed that booze never 
had and nt-ver would tend to make bet- 
ter Indians, better homes, better and 
happier mothers, btiter citizens, min- 
ers, banker.s lumbermen, railroad men 
or farmers. 

"New: Has the treaty become obso- 
lete because <>f the fact that citizens of 
the United States moved In as expect- 
e.i l»y the chiefs and congress? or has 
it bt Vii proven that the old chl<fs and 
our former congres.s were mistaken in 
their eontentlc'n that booze was detri- 
mentiil to nuTal, industrial and happy 
home development. 

"Will your arguments on the obso- 
Itfdi' ss of the 1865 tieaty be based on 
that the chiefs erred, and that booze 
la now needed 
homes, to lalse 

produce better railroad, farm, mill and 
mining laborers, or better bankers and 
leKi^Iators? If you can prove this we 
will not oppose the abrogation of the 
1865 treaty.

"Third. As i«> y.iur point that the

a little surprised in the first paragraph 
of the official oath of office. The gov- 
ernor of Minnesota (the chief sponsor 
for the state dignity and honor), 
awears. first to uphold and enforce the 
laws of the Federal union, then of the 
Btate, and If he wishes to be true to 
his oath of office there would be no 
need of martial law in this part of the 
Btate to fight the invading booze en- 

citizens of the itate of Minnesota to 
do so. Those citizens, acting within 
their full legal rights, and 1 firmly be- 
lieve you and others of your friends 
could do the most good for the honor 
and dignity of the state of Minnesota 
by going to th>! governor and brace 
or back him up to do his full duty 
as a citizen of the Federal union, as 
well as of the s ate, and for the state 
of Minnesota and its citizens to obey 
the Federal as vi^ell as the state laws.

Hopes Every Man and Wo- 
man Adopts This Splendid 
Morning Habit. 

Why Is and woman, half the 
time. " feeling nervous, despondent, 
worried; some days headachy, dull and 
unstrung; some days really incapaci- 
tated by illness. 

If we all would practice inside-bath- 
ing, what a gratifying change would 
take place. Instead of thousands of 
half-sick, anaemic-looking souls with 
pasty, muddy complexions we should 
see crowds of happy, healthy, rosy- 
cheeked people everywhere. The rea- 
son is that the human system does not 
rid itself each day of all the waste 
which it accumulates under our pres- 
ent mode of living. For every ounce 
of food and drink taken into the sys- 
tem nearly an ounce of waste material 
must be carried out, else it ferments 
and forms ptomaine-like poisons which 
are absorbed Into the blood. 

Just as necessary as it is to clean 
the ashes from the furnace each day, 
before the fire will burn bright and 
hot, so we must each morning clear 
the inside organs of the previous day's 
accumulation of indigestible waste and 
body toxins. Men and women, whether 
sick or w-ell, are advised to drink each 
morning, before breakfast, a glass of 
real hot water with a teaspoonful of 
limestone phosphate in it, as a harm- 
less means of washing out of the 
stomach, liver, kidneys and bowels the 
indigestible material, waste, sour bile 
and toxins; thus cleansing, sweeten- 
ing and purifying the entire alimen- 
tary canal before putting more food 
into the stomach. 

Millions of people who had their turn 
at constipation, bilious attacks, acid 
stomach, nervous days and sleepless 
nights have become real cranks about 
the morning inside-bath. A quarter 
pound of limestone phosphate will not 
cost much at the drug store, but is 
sufficient to demonstrate to anyone. 
Its cleansing, sweetening and freshen- 
ing effect upon the system. — Adver-

Virginia. Minn, Feb. 23.— CSpeclal to 
The Herald.)— Unless Fort William de- 
posits a »2.000 bond with the Northern 
league Friday that it wUl finish the 
1916 season, its place In the six-club 
circuit may be taken by Grand Forks. 
The suggestion that the six clubs of 
the Burmelster loop furnish IfOOO 
bonds was made by A. B. Coates of the 
Virginia club. -It was reported In the 
newspapers, but the news was scouted 
by the wiseacres. However, every team 
will deposit the $2,000 bonds or will 
not be In the league. 

Under an eight-club circuit agree- 
ment, It would not matter so much If 
one club withdrew before the season 
was finished, but a club's withdrawal ^ 
In a six-club loop, means the disrup- , 
tion of the organization. i 

Grand Forks Is anxious to join the 
Burmelster crew and has the ready 
money with which to support the club. | 
Mileage would also be saved by hay- ; 
Ine the Fllckertails In the clrcuH. 
There is always keen rivalry between 
Grand Forks and F argo. 


St. Paul. Minn.. Feb. 23 —(Special to ,

to impose a license for boxing exhibi- 
tions. , . - 

Mr. Thompson looks upon such af- 
fairs as purely under the state law 
and without interference from the city 
authorities. Attorney General Smith 
promised to look into the matter. 

Suffering In Ra««l«. 

Sheboygan, Wis., Ftb. 23— Simon 
Swerdlow is in receipt of a letter from 
his father In Klaman, Russia, telling 
of the terrible suffering there. He 
declares flour costs $4 per fifty pounds 
and that firewood is |36 a load or |72

obliterated In the letter by the censor. 

Sugar prices are advancing with 
•very probability of a still higher mar- 
ket being established In the near fu- 
I ture. Jobbers at New York are now 
: quoting refined sugars at 6.25 cents a 
pound,- as compared with 6.10 cents a 
; week ago and 5.76 eenta at this time 

last year. ,^-» '^, 

The strength and activity In sugars 
Is attributed by operators to compet- 
itive buying of CuWan and Porto Rtcan 
raw sugars by tha allies. Scandinavia, 
Switzerland. HoWapA Spain, and sev- 
eral of the South -AJnerlcan countries. 
A current Eurouean,..beet sugar crop 
6.489.502 tons, as .timpared with a nor- 
mal production of 51O8.OOO tons, has 
driven the countries on that continent 
Into the markets on this hemisphere 
to an unprecpdonted extent. 

England and France are having sucn 
difficulty In obtaining enough sugar 
that they will endeavor to curtail con- 
sumption, and severe measures have 
been taken to check speculation. Spain 
has made drastic reductions 1". It" 
sugar import duties. The latest Indica- 
tion of the stringent situation in the 
sugar market comes from Argentina, 

A. J. KULL. 

which has placed an embargo against 
further exportalions of sugar. 
Call on ABifrica. 

On account of these conditions, it Is 
estimated that the United States will 
be called upon to supply England with 
30,000 tons of sugar this year, and the 
growing of sugar beets Is expected to 
bi' given a boost. 

There has been a disposition mani- 
fested by the sugar trade to take it 
for granted that the duly on sugar is 
to be retained but that cannot be ac- 
complished without affirmative legis- 
lation. Unless congress acts, all sugar 
will be admitted free on and after May 
1. Sugar men are now beginning to 
get just a little nervous and are anx- 
ious to see congress take the matter 
up with an Indication that it is to be 
pushed through. At present all sugars 
of 96 degs. test pay a duty of 1.256 
cents per pound except those coming 
from Cuba, which have a preferential 
duty of 20 per cent and pay 1.0048 
cents. If the duty comes off it is es- 
timated that it .should make sugaj- at 
least a cent a pound cheaper to the ul- 
timate consumer.

Horehound or thoroughwort tea for

Now newer remedies have takea 
the place of the old — a tablet of a«» 
plrln or a capsule of quinine for th* 
fever without the old bitter tea — and 
Goosolene to rub on the chest of 
throat. Instead of the old goose oil 
md turpentine, gives quick relief, for 
the congestion, soreness or pain. 

For the little ones Baby Goos-olen»

ernoon, the man lay down on a pile of 
cinder* near the track and went to 
sleep, according to people working 

near the scene of the accident. 

He rolled down between the rails 
and although the engineer saw the 
body, he was unable to stop the train 
in time to save the man's ILfe. He 
was killed almost instantly, bystand- 
ers said. 

Nothing is known of the dead man. 
except that he left Duluth Monday, 
evidently going north to the woods for 
work. When train officials found that 
he had no money, it is said, they put 
him off the train at Twig, a station not 
far from Pike lake.

Knights of the Road Giving the City 
Wide Berth. 

Knights of the road, gentlemen of 
leisure, weary willies, tramps, and oth- 
ers of tholr Ilk have chalk-marked 
sign posts along roads leading into Du- 
luth with a cross. 

The cross corresponds to those drawn 
on door stepa of houses where the fam- 
ily keeps a sharp-toothed dog, and 
means "stay away." 

The cause of all this Is Chief of Po- 
lice R. D. McKercher's ultimatum to 
the effect that loafers will not be tol- 
erated. "Work or get out of town — 
Or go to jail," the chief has said, and 
offenders know that he is not Joking. 

Five more alleged "vags" were "on 
the carpet" this morning. William Wil- 
son. 27. was released to go to work; 
Frank Burns, 24, pleaded not guilty; 
Charles O'Brien. 82. was sentenced to 
ten days at the work farm; while Nick 

Ises In good condition and that when 
on Sept. 23, 1916, he expressed a de- 
sire to terminate the lease, the de- 
fendant refused him possession. In a 
separate cause of action, he demands 
$1,200 damages. Eklund denies the 
claims set forth by Lavell and Is 
pressing a counterclaim for $150. al- 
leging that the plaintiff removed a 
warehouse from the farm contrary to 
the provisions of the lease. W. B. 
Phelps appears in the case as attor- 
ney for the plaintiff and Andrew Nel- 
son is representing Eklund. 


Conductor's Hunting Story Told in

Standing in the lobl.>y of the Holland

"Funny he could get away with that

to know about the case.

his e\ldence, but it was not i.«sued un-

F. A\ . McN'air. president of the Michi-

in DuhUh today. Mr. McNalr was the 
guest of honor at the dinner given by 
the Michigan alumni in Virginia last 
evening, and is visiting friends here to- 

"t)ne of the reasons why I am led 
to believe the mining industry is en- 
joying remarkable prosperity," is that 
the demand for mining engineers is 
greater than we can possibly fill." said 
President McNair. "Just before I left 
on my present trip. I was besieged 
with three urgent demands for mining 
engineers. One offer was from To- 
ronto, another from Arizona, and the 
third from Idaho. I was omiged to tell 
all of the inquiring persons that we 
had alread.v received more demands 
than we could iiossibly fill. 

"A trip through the AVestern minlti 
r»^gions has convinced me that the mi'-- 
Ing industry is enjoying a very decided 
boom. The demand for copi^er is ex- 
ceedingly great. I understand a large 
f «»ppcr company placed a big order of 
copper at :;8 cents the other day. 
With the present price of the metal 
and the demand increasing, there is 
sniall wonder that the mines are busy."

Minneapolis, Minn.. Feb. 23. — (Special 
to The Herald.) — Robbed of a diamond 
ring valued at ?1.600 at a ^land oper'A. 
performance in Minneapolis early in 
January, Mrs. Pearl B. Otis started a. 
search that covered half a dozen stales, 
and resulted today in the arrest at 
Sioux Falls, S. D., of James Carr and 
Roy Baxter, who are charged with, 
grand larceny. 

Carr was Mrs. Otis' escort at the 
opera. Baxter, introduced by Carr, 
escorted Mrs. Marie Corday. the fourth 
member of the party. Both men are 
already under indictment by the Hen- 
nepin county grand jury and will be 
returned to Minneapolis for trial. 

Mrs. Otis said today that several 
weeks ago Carr called at her home 
and introduced himself as a close friend 
of relatives of hers at Albert Lea, 

At a theater performance, Mrs. Otis 
said, the diamond ring hurt her fing< r, 
and she took it off. Thereafter it dis- 
appeared, she said. 


Dr. W. A. McClaran of Duluth re- 
turned todaj' from a business trip to 
Pliiladelphia, Pittsburgh, Cleveland, 
Youngstown, and other steel centers, 
with the statement that it requires a 
Journey to tin East to appreciate or 
understand tlie remarkable activity 
the vari.-d business interests are en- 

"Manufacturers are refusing orders, 
money is plentiful and easy, and the 
orders for steel and steel metal are so 
huge that it is certain that the demand 
for ore will be the greatest in years," 
said he. 

"Business men of the East and Mid- 
dle West are thoroughly convinced 
that the country Is facing the greatest 
era of prosperity in years. Steel men 
especially are of the belief that the 
present demands will drive that busi- 
ness beyond all former marks. All 
tills, naturally, will direct a business 
activity toward Duluth. The almost 
unprecedented demand for steel and 
pig iron can only mean a great season 
of activity on the Minnesota iron 
ranges. Every business man from Pitts- 
burgh east is convinced that this 
spring will mark a remarkable in- 
crease of business activity. " 

Dr. McClaran declared that Duluth 
is being closely watch in Eastern 
steel ciicles. and that It is looked upon 
as the coming steel center of the West.

Says We Must Keep Feet* 

Dry, Avoid Exposure and 

Eat Less Meat. 

stay off the damp ground, avoid ex- 
posure, keep feet dry, eat less meat, 
diink lots of water and above all take 
a spoonful of salts occasionally to 
keep down uric acid. 

Itheumatlsm Is caused by poisonous 
toxin, called uric add, which is gen- 
erated in the bowels and absorbed 
into the blood. It is the function of 
the kidneys to filter this acid from the 
blood and cast it out in the urine. The 
pores of the skin are also a means of 
freeing the blood of this impurity. In 
damp and chilly, cold weather the 
Bkln pores are closed, thus forcing the 
kidneys to do double work, they be- 
come weak and sluggish and fall to 
eliminate this uric acid which keeps 
accumulating and circulating through 
the system, eventually settling in the 
joints and muscles, causing stiffness, 
soreness and pain called rheumatism. 
At the first twinge of rheumatism 
get from any pharmacy about four 
ounces of Jad Salts; put a tablespoon- 
ful In a glass of water and drink be- 
fore breakfast each morning for a 
week. This is said to eliminate uric 
acid by stimulating the kidneys to 
normal action, thus ridding the blood 
of these Impurities. 

Jad Salts is Inexpensive, harmless 
and Is made from the acid of grapes 
and lemon Juice, combined with llthia 
and is used with excellent results by 
thousands of folks who are subject to 
rheumatism. Here you have a pleas- 
ant, effervescent lithia-water drink 
which overcomes uric acid and is 
beneficial to your kldneya a» w«ll. —

"California Syrup of Figs" 
Can't Harm Tender Stom- 
ach, Liver, Bowels. 

Mother! Your child isn't naturally 
cross and peevish. See if tongue is 
coated; this is a .sure sign the littl* 
stomach, liver and bowels need a 
cleansing at once. 

When listless, pale, feverish, full of 
cold, breath bad, throat sore, doesn't 
eat, sleep or act naturally, has stom- 
ach-ache, diarrhoea, remember, a gen- 
tle liver and bowel cleansing should al- 
ways be the first treatment given. 

Nothing equals "California Syrup of 
Figs" for children's ills; give a tea- 
spoonful, and in a few hours all the 
foul waste, sour bile and fermentingf 
foo4 which is clogged in the bowels out of the system, and you have 
a well and playful child again. All 
children love this harmless, delicious 
"fruit la-xative," and it never fails to 
effect good "inside" cleansing. Direc- 
tions for babies, children of all ages 
and grown-ups are plainly on the bot- 

Keep It handy In your home. A lit- 
tle given today save.s a sick child to- 
morrow, but get the genuine. Ask your 
druggist for a 50-cent bottle of "Cali- 
fornia SjTup of F'igs." look and see 
that it is made by the California Fig: 
Syrup Company." — Advertisement.

Use Grandma's Sage Tea 

and Sulphu'r Recipe and 

Nobody Will Know. 

The use of Sage and Sulphur for re- 
storing faded, gray hair to Its natural 
color dates back to grandmother's 
time. She used It to keep her hair 
beautifully dark, glossy and abundant. 
Whenever her hair fell out or took on 
that dull, faded or streaked appear- 
ance, this simple mixture was applied 
with wonderful effect. 

But brewing at home Is mussy and 
out-of-date. Nowadays, by asking at 
any drug store for a 60 cent bottle of 
"Wyeth'a Sago and Sulphur Hair Rem- 
edy," you win get this famous old 
recipe which can be depended upon to 
restore natural color and beauty to the 
hair and Is splendid for dandruff, dry. 
I feveflsh. Itchy scalp and falling hair. 
I A well-known downtown druggist 
I says it darkens the hair so naturally 
and evenly that nobody can tell it has 
been applied. You simply dampen a 
fiponge or soft brush with it and draw 
this through your hair, taking one 
strand at a time. By morning the 
gray hair disappears, and after an- 
other application or two. It becomes 
beautifully dark, glossy, soft and 
Abuixdaat. — ^Advertlseineat.

B'nai B'ritti Lodge Joins 

Campaign Against the 

Burnett Bill. 

Covenant lodge. Independent Order 
of ITnal B'ritn, at a meeting in the 
Temple Emanuel vestry rooms last 
evening, adopted resblutions protest- 
ing against the passage of the Burnett 
immigration bill. 

* Telegrams were sent this morning 
by A. B. Kapplin, president, and Sam- 
uel Weinstein,- secretary of the lodge, 
to United States Senator.s Nelson and 
Clapp, and Congressman Miller of this 
district urging them to oppose the 
Burnett bill, because of the literacy 
test Included in the measure. , This 
! same bill was vetoed by President 
Wilson and Former President Taft be- 
cause of the literacy test provision, 
but was filed again by its author with 
the present congress and Is now being 
considered by the senate immigration 
committee. ^,,, 

Protests against the Burnett bill are 
being made in all parts of the country, 
and a Jiatiooal campaign lias been in^ 
I stUuted by thff B'nal B'nth grand 
lodge to defeat this measure, which la 
i declared to be unfair to many Imml- 
I grants, who are barred because they 
are .not qualified to enter this country 
under the provisions of the literacy 
te«t. Russian Jews, It is explained, are 
barred from many schools In that 
country and, as a result, are unable to 
pass the test for Russian Immigrants. 
An amendment to the bill, providing 
for Jewish as a language and one of 
the tests, was Inserted last year, but 
the measure was vetoed by President 
Wilson on the grounds that it was 
against the fundamentals of the 
American Constitution. 

At the meeUng last evening Cove- 
nant lodge arranged for a literary and 
social evening on March 11 for the 
members of the lodge and their fami- 
lies. The annual spring initiation 'will 
be staged some time In April.

Ing to S\c, and then good buying and 
short covering dt.:nand led to a rally 
tif over 2c. 

Operators showed extreme anxi«^ty

over 5c in the Winnipeg market yes- 
t(i>i&.v, and that bilng reflected in Liv- 
♦ rpool i^ables, wlikh declined from 1 
to Jd The low HRures of the session 
W're made at the start, the tendency 
after thr.t being dl.siinctly upward. 
Bull ammunition was furnished In the 
report that 8,000,000 bu of wheat had 
been sold for export at Winnipeg yes- 
tenlay and that more ^ood buying for 
shipment to Liverpool had appeared 
there today. Sales of 1.600.000 bu of 
wheat were reported at the seaboard. 
After selling down 5^*0 from Mon- 
day's close to $1.18 >4 the Winnipeg 
market rallied to $1.22. 

Receiptai at all points showed a 
marked picking up. and fears are en- 
tertained that if the movement to the 
terminals is nruiintained for even a 
iihort time on the basis forecasted by 
country advices, congestion will de- 
velop. Inspections of wheat at Du- 
lulli today were 176 cars, and there 
weie 226 cars* of all grains on the 
tra- ks. At Minneapolis there were 946 
cars against 178 last year, and Winni- 
peg had 1.924 cars for the two days 463 last year. The big move- 
mtnt up there Is accounted for by the 
fact that the Canadian railroads have 
cancelled their embargoes against 
srain shlpmeiits. Receipts of bonded 
wheat at the elevators here today 
amounted to 172 cars and 30 cars of 
oats oanie in.

Wheat Breaks Severely as Result of 

Foreign Weakness. 

Chicago, Feb. 23. — Wheat prices 
broke severely today Influenced by a 
general rush to sell as a result of 
weakness at Winnipeg and Liverpool. 
Receipts in Winnipeg were big and 
Liverpool had word that the Australian 
surpltis was twice as large as any ever 
before obtained. There was also a 
notable increase in the European vis- 
ible supply. 'Declines were most pro- 
nounced here at the opening, which 
ranged from 1% to 4%(ff%c down, with 
May at $1.20% to $122% and July at 
$1.17% to $1.18%. When comparative 
steadiness had been restored the mar- 
ket was 1% to 2%c under Monday's 
closing figures. 

A further upturn ensued because of 
assertions by a leading crop expert that 
more than the usual amount of winter 
killing would soon be discovered. Gos- 
sip was al><o current that a liberal 
amount of export business was being 
done, chiefly, however, for deferred 
shli>ment. The close was unsettled, 
"ic to l%®l%c net lower with May 
at $1.23% and July at $1.19%. 

Corn developed strength despite the 
setback in the value of wheat. Ar- 
rivals here turned out to be much j Twins. New York state, 
smaller than expected. After opening | Young Ameriti*, lb ...

gains. I 

Gains became much more pronounced 
later, the market feeling the effect of | 
predictions that the crest of the move- 1 
ment to primary terminals had been 1

Business in Stocks Becomes 

Smaller With Progress 

of Session. 

Prices of Specialties Lower 

and Representative Shares 


N'ew York. Feb, 23. — Uneasiness was j 
again the dominant note at the opening j 
of today's marKet. developments over 
the holiday making for greater cau- 
tion. Most specialties were lower, with 
marked heaviness in Industrial Alco- 
hol, Mexican Petroleum, Baldwin Loco- 
motive and other issues of the same 
class. New Haven's decline of a point 
was the only feature of the railway 
list. These losses were offset in a 
measure by further advances in South 
Porto Rico sugar. United Fruit, Marine 
preferred and some of the metals; but 
representative shares were irregular. 

Trading in the first hour of the stock 
market today was the smallest in many 
months amounting to less than 100,000 
shares. It become lighter with the 
progress of the session. Except for 
United States Steel, Pennsylvania and a 
few other standard stocks, transactions 
were mostly in 100 share lots. Special- 
ties continued to sag, losses ranging 
from 1 to 3 points, although Alcohol re- 
covered its initial decline. Bethlehem 
Steel dropped 5 to 475. American Can 
was almost the only active stock to dis- 
play strength, rising 1% points. A 
moderately better tone prevailed at 
noon. Bonds were heavy with exten- 
sive dealings in Anglo-French Gs. 

War shares, particularly American 
Locomotive, Continental Can, Stude- 
baker and Crucible Steel, were fairly 
active and decidedly strong during the 
mid-season. Later, prices fell again, 
however, on light offerings. 

Sudden weakness in Marine preferred 
and heavines.s in coppers led another 
decline in the final hour. The closing 
was irregular.

to Anaconda for a price said to b« 
close to $1,100,000, tvhich will give 
stockholders of Pilot Butte about $11

« • • 
A Boston wire said: "These rumors 
regarding East Butte are unfounded. 
East Butte property is no different to- 
day than for some time. The ore Is 
not as rich as six months ago, but this 
is not unusual. The average is at 
present about 3% to 4 per cent. A 
large amount of ore is coming from 
drifting work on the lower levels and 
no stoping has yet been done on these 
levels. The stock around $13 is cheap 
as the company has about $460,000 in 
cash and copper, and is making money.'

Photographers and dealers In photo- 
graphic supplies are feeling the effect 
of the war and the blockade against 
all shipments from Germany, in higher 
costs of all materials. In that connec- 
tion it Is claimed that the price ad7 
vances extend all the way from 60 to 
600 per cent. 

Aniline dye."; liave recorded the most 
remarkable advance to $20 a pound, as 
compared with only 20 cents before the 
war started. Metol, a standard pro- 
duct. In the developing and printing 
of pictures, is worth $40 a pound, 
whereas it cost only 80 cents a pound 
six months ago. Tydroqulnine, for- 
merly Imported entirely from Ger- 
many, is now being made in this coun- 
try "and the shortage in It Is not so 

Conditions in photographic supplies 
markets are in fact so stringent, that 
Duluth dealers do not care to predict 
what the amateur photographer may 
have to pay for his materials during 
the coming summer.

Bookings Are Already Being 

Made for August 


Everything Is booming on the copper 
trade, and shareholders of the lead- 
ing companies have before then* 
visions of big dividends and advancMi 
'n stock quotations. 

Some of the copper producers ar© 
said to have sold their outputs ahead 
up to well into the summer montjt\ 
and heavy bookings are now reports _ 
for July and August deliveries. Few 
fiompanles are in a position to accept 
orders for June delivery, accordiiife to 
reports, and quotations being made 
range as high as 28% cents a round. 

European consumers are bidding ui> 
for copper supplies and as a conse- 
quence the price of the metal at Lon- 
don stands at 29 cents a pound for 
June and later delivery. The market 
action of the copper market at Lon- 
don is said to reflect the serious sit- 
uation confronting foreign consumer?. 
This has been largely brought about 
through the scarcity of ships, and in 
that connection it is feared that con- 
ditions will grow worse rather than 
better. Exports of copper from Atlan- 
tic ports have been falling off stead- 
ily during the last two months on that 
account. For the week ended Feb. 17 
they amounted to 2,836 tons, as com- 
pared with 8,801 tons for the week of 
Jan. 18. 

Bljc DtvMendR Kxpected. 

Big: extra and increased dividend 
payments by the various companies 
are looked for within the next few 
months due to the extraordinary de- 
inand for metal at high prices. Amon» 
the companies said to be slated for fa- 
vorable dividend action are the Ana- 
conda.. Utah, Kennecott. Chino. Ray 
Consolidated. North Butte and Shat-
